Wow! This book was a lot of fun - lots of near death, grueling survival stories punctuated with data explaining who survives a disaster, how, and why. I read this book in a day. Couldn't put it down.

This is my ALL TIME, FAVORITE book. The middle section of the book is rarely depicted in film, and is the BEST part. It's all about man's relationship to his maker and how his maker is horrified by him and tries to flee from him, and how the creation...more
