    From terror attacks to the War on Terror, bursting real-estate bubbles to crystal meth epidemics, sexual predators to poisonous toys from China, our list of fears seems to be exploding. And yet, we are the safest and healthiest humans in history. Irrational fear is running amok, and often with tragic results. In the months after 9/11, when people decided to drive instead of fly - believing they were avoiding risk - road deaths rose by 1,595. Those lives were lost to fear.

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    Interesting perspective on why people react to the things they do and what we should be reacting to. Very well read though got a bit repeatitve towards the end. Enlightening to those who havent sat back and thought about the mathematical realities of of those things most people fear.


    What does Scott Peterson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Well read and enjoable to listen to.
