Did you know you have a frog and a rat in your brain that help you survive?  I learned that while reading Laurence Gonzales’ latest book, “Surviving Survival”.  The title, though initially vague, points out an excellent conundrum:  what do you do once you’ve survived a crisis?  You don’t come out the other side of any crisis the same so how do you assimilate the  “survivor” parts of you into your old view of yourself.  You must be a whole being to move comfortably forward.

Often complex and though I have a little whiplash from descriptions of “drama in real life” to deep diving in the neurology, I give it 4 of 5 stars.  Great book!
