Spring Branch-Memorial Library--The Page Turners

The unthinkableTitle to be discussed: The unthinkable: who survives when disaster strikes--and why by Amanda Ripley.  Date of meeting: Tuesday, September 12, 6:30 p.m.  Summary: "Today, nine out of ten Americans live in places at significant risk of earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, terrorism, or other disasters. Tomorrow, some of us will have to make split-second choices to save ourselves and our families. How will we react? What will it feel like? Will we be heroes or victims? Amanda Ripley retraces the human response to some of history's epic disasters, from the explosion of the Mont Blanc munitions ship in 1917, a plane crash in England in 1985, to the journeys of the 15,000 people who found their way out of the World Trade Center. Then, to understand the science behind the stories, Ripley turns to leading brain scientists, trauma psychologists, and other disaster experts. Finally, Ripley steps into the dark corners of her own imagination, having her brain examined by military researchers and experiencing through realistic simulations what it might be like to survive a plane crash into the ocean or to escape a raging fire. Ripley comes back with precious wisdom about the surprising humanity of crowds, the elegance of the brain's fear circuits, and the stunning inadequacy of many of our evolutionary responses."
