Welcome back for another episode of Nick’s Non-fiction with your host Nick Muniz!
If you want to really learn about a complex system like the human mind, study what happens when it’s pushed to the breaking point. Deep Survival flawlessly explains how the mind processes strong emotions and instincts, develops models of how the world works, and continuously adjusts those models in stressful and demanding circumstances. Laurence Gonzales’s bestseller has helped save lives from the deepest wildernesses, just as it has improved readers’ everyday lives. Its mix of adventure narrative, survival science, and practical advice has inspired everyone from business leaders to military officers and psychiatric professionals on how to take control of stress and make better decisions under pressure.
