A "must-read" book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Risk (Paperback)
It's incredible how many well-meaning attempts to make society "safer" fail, foundering on society's apparent unwillingness to be safe. Adams not only tells us what's going wrong, but actually describes the ways in which risk taking behaviour can be understood and managed.
Of particular interest is the chapter on seat belt laws. Once you've read that, I guarantee you will be hooked.
