Not quite through with this one yet, and may never finish it. But hopping around it, some of the stories of survival were riveting...especially the one about the author's father. The guy was a fighter pilot in World War II and was shot out of the sky at 27,000 feet. His parachute failed...and survived the fall...say, what?

The author's attempt to construct a coherent, illuminating theory as to why some survive and some don't didn't seem to materialize...maybe I need to read more...
