**** “If you’re clinging to a lifeboat, surrounded by sharks (figuratively or literally), what should you think about? Who should you ignore? What are the patterns of mind and heart that have helped Antarctic explorers, soldiers, lobster fishermen, and prisoners of war stay sane—and alive? Michael Tougias converts the wisdom of survivors into advice we can all use to light up the darkness.”
