"The study of survival offers an illuminating portal into the human psyche, and Gonzales, knowledgeable and passionate, is a compelling and trustworthy guide."Booklist

"A superb, entertaining addition to a nature buff's libraryor for anyone not tucked safely away in a bunker." Kirkus Reviews

After her plane crashes, a seventeen-year-old girl spends eleven days walking through the Peruvian jungle. Against all odds, with no food, shelter, or equipment, she gets out. A better equipped group of adult survivors of the same crash sits down and dies. What makes the difference?

Examining such stories of miraculous endurance and tragic death, Deep Survival takes us from the tops of snowy mountains and the depths of oceans to the workings of the brain that control our behavior. Through close analysis of case studies, Laurence Gonzales describes the essence of a survivor and offers twelve "Rules of Survival." In the end, he finds, it is what's in your heart, not what's in your pack, that separates the living from the dead. This book will change the way we understand ourselves and the great outdoors.

Award-winning author Laurence Gonzales is a contributing editor at National Geographic Adventure. He has written for Outside, Harpers, and Men's Journal, among other magazines. He lives in Evanston, Illinois.

Stefan Rudnicki has won the highest awards in the narrating industry, including a GRAMMY® Award for production, the 2005 Audie Award for narration, and multiple AudioFile Earphones Awards.
