The Survivors Club review and giveaway 5 winners



THE SURVIVORS CLUB

Each second of the day, someone in America faces a crisis, whether it's a car accident, violent crime, serious illness, or financial trouble. Given the inevitability of adversity, we all wonder: Who beats the odds and who surrenders? Why do some people bound back and others give up? How can I become the kind of person who survives and thrives?

The fascinating, hopeful answers to these questions are found in THE SURVIVORS CLUB. In the tradition of Freakonomics and The Tipping Point, this book reveals the hidden side of survival by combining astonishing true stories, gripping scientific research, and the author's adventures inside the U.S. military's elite survival schools and the government's airplane crash evacuation course.

With THE SURVIVORS CLUB, you can also discover your own Survivor IQ through a powerful Internet-based test called the Survivor Profiler. Developed exclusively for this book, the test analyzes your personality and generates a customized report on your top survivor strengths.

There is no escaping life's inevitable struggles. But THE SURVIVORS CLUB can give you an edge when adversity strikes.

Afraid to do? I used to think about hang-gliding, sky-diving, or bungee-jumping. Now that I'm a wife and mom, I'm afraid to do any of those things!

Thanks for the chance to win!

I was in a car accident when I was younger, but I don't remember most of it. It wasn't too bad, and we were all okay. But my biggest fear is being in a roll-over car accident. I'm not sure how I'd fare!

I survived watching my daughter die. It was the most horrible experience and one that has changed my life forever. Fortunately, I have found a way through the grief and have been able to continue living for the sake of my other children.
