As a journalist, Leigh Sales often encounters people experiencing the worst moments of their lives in the full glare of the media. But one particular string of bad news stories - and a terrifying brush with her own mortality - sent her looking for answers about how vulnerable each of us is to a life-changing event. Talking intimately with people who've faced the unimaginable, from terrorism to natural disaster to simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time, she discovers strength, hope, even humour. Leigh condenses the cutting-edge research on the way the human brain processes fear and grief, and poses the questions we too often ignore out of awkwardness. Warm, candid and empathetic.
