How to Live Dangerously : Why We Should All Stop Worrying & Start Living Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

We live in a society governed by Fear. Packets of peanuts 'may contain nuts', our children are locked away safe indoors, and we are encouraged to fear risks that previous generations took for granted. The result is a temptation never to leave the house. How to Live Dangerously is a sane, straight-talking, wonderfully entertaining manifesto that assesses the real risks of modern-day life*, and encourages us to embrace a new freedom in the way we live. Sometimes, sh1t happens - but you may as well get out there and enjoy yourself while you can because, in the end, you're a long time dead.

*Don't like your children much? You'd have to lock them out of the house every day for 186,000 years before they were abducted (and even then you'd get them back within 24 hours)

*Afraid of flying? If you really want to die in a plane crash, you'll need to take a flight a day for the next 26,000 years . . .
