Giveaway: The Survivors Club- The Secrets and Science that Could Save Your Life- (giveaway closed)



A few months ago I first heard about a book that sounds really interesting, called The Survivors Club: The Secrets and Science that Could Save Your Life.

From the book's website:
In tough times, who bounces back and who doesn’t? After losing a job, who finds a new one and who gives up? After a devastating medical diagnosis, who beats the odds and who doesn’t? And perhaps most important: What do survivors and thrivers know that we don’t?
The fascinating and surprising answers to these questions can be found in The Survivors Club by award winning journalist and bestselling author Ben Sherwood.
As a mom, I love the idea behind this book. Anytime I can arm myself with information that could help my family, I'm glad to do so!

I'm intrigued by this book, but mostly I would like it for my son, who would be fascinated with it! He's really into reading True Gory Scary Stories of Harrowing Near-Death Escapes sort of books these days. : )
Thank you!

I've always wondered why some people survive and thrive in difficult and often scary situations and others... well, don't. So I would love to read this novel. Please accept this as my entry. Thank you!

I would like to read this book as this topic has always fascinated me. What makes one person climb to the top after a trauma and or tragedy, and another person unable to overcome small obstacles in their life? Really interesting subject matter and I'm sure this book is a great read.
