    After her plane crashes, a 17-year-old girl spends 11 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?

    Overall

    If you are an outdoor enthusiast, this book is a must read. Even if you arent (and I am not) you will probably be very entertained. Although I found the book a little slow, it gets much better and exciting as it goes. The stories get more amazing and I found them inspiring.

    The author draws many observations about "how to" survive, many which seem legitimate, but I found the true stories themselves worth my time. It has made me want to go to survival school.

    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

    Kerry says: "Witty and Wonderful"
    "Well written sob story"
    Overall

    Well written and entertaining throughout. For me, it felt like I would enjoy it more if I were going through a divorce or other mid-life crisis. The author describes her divorce and the terrorist attacks of 9/11 as if they are accurate comparisions for grief and sympathy. I had problems identifying or sympathizing with her at all. If you are going through a divorce or other moderate emotional tragedy in your life, this book may help you cope. If you have had real tragedies in your life, this book may offend you.

    A smart and funny book by a prominent Harvard psychologist, which uses groundbreaking research and (often hilarious) anecdotes to show us why we're so lousy at predicting what will make us happy, and what we can do about it.

    Terril Lowe says: "Great Book!"
    "Very Good."
    Overall

    This book explains some very interesting truths about human nature in a very humorous and interesting way. Not a self-help book.
