Deep Survival: Who Lives, Who Dies, and Why

Screen Shot 2016-04-19 at 11.01.46 AMUnforgettable storytelling from the edge of the world and the inner reaches of the mind.

Why did one man live against all odds and another die when all he had to do was wait to be rescued?

In Deep Survival Laurence Gonzales pulls readers to the boundary regions between between life and death, where they peer into the hearts, minds, and souls of those who have survived seemingly impossible situations and those who have given in to death.

I tore through Deep Survival like I’d been waiting to read it my whole life. I can’t imagine a better book on the topic.”

—Sebastian Junger, author of The Pefect Storm

Unique among survival books… stunning… enthralling. Deep Survival makes compelling, and chilling, reading.”
