Heavy Reserve Alert — ‘Survivors Club’

I usually ignore flight attendants’ suggestions that I read the safety brochure in the seat pocket in front of me. However, on my way to MidWinter, I found myself studying the brochure carefully as we flew over the Hudson River, where a plane had made an emergency landing just a week before. 

In the midst of our heightened awareness that it’s good to know what you’re doing in an emergency, comes the new book, The Survivors Club: The Secrets and Science That Could Save Your Life.

An adaptation of the book is featured in this week’s Newsweek (the opening scenario is about a librarian who accidentally stabs herself in the heart with a knitting needle and survives because she did the right things). 

Some libraries are showing heavy reserves. The book is also available in large type and audio; most libraries have not ordered it in those formats yet.
