安全心理學專家Steve Casner揭露如何自我保護,改善易受傷的心理

「讓人目不轉睛的全新題材,教導你如何在充滿危險與刺激世界的生存之道。」─Charles Duhigg,暢銷書《 Smarter Faster Better and The Power of Habit》作者

現代社會充斥各種隱藏的危險,超速的車輛、智慧型手機、新藥品及令人膽顫心驚的極限運動,而人類仍依舊脆弱。事實上,即使經過幾世紀的改革與變化,意外傷害及死亡的比例仍持續增長。專精研究於安全心理學的作者Steve Casner儘管有安全警示或保險裝置,人們仍無法避免危險。Casner以心理學的角度解釋理解為何人們儘管小心翼翼,卻依舊下意識讓自己身陷危險事物。無論你是飛機駕駛、好萊塢的特技演員,或是正在修理堵塞的洗碗機,他模擬各種危險情境的處理方式,讓你安全避免危機。儘管災難意外不斷發生,事前的防範仍可減少危機。 

-Gripping, page-turning material . . . a new way of thinking about survival in a world filled with hazards and distractions.- --Charles Duhigg, author of Smarter Faster Better and The Power of Habit
A safety expert reveals why few of us are as careful as we think we are, and what we can do about it.

The modern world can be a dangerous place, filled with fast cars, smartphones, new drugs, and thrill sports. Meanwhile, we humans are as fragile as ever. In fact, after a century of steady improvement, injuries and accidental deaths are on the rise.

Steve Casner has devoted his career to studying the psychology of safety, and he knows there's not a safety warning we won't ignore or a foolproof device we can't turn into an implement of disaster.

Careful helps us understand why we do things like insist on the fat-free salad dressing but then text and drive. Casner explains the psychological traps that can lead us to the scene of an accident. They're the same whether you're a pilot, a Hollywood stuntwoman, a parent, or the owner of a clogged dishwasher you're trying to fix with a screwdriver. Then Casner shows us how and when the injuries happen, so we know exactly what we should really be worrying about.
Casner's book helps us keep our fingers attached in the kitchen, our kids afloat at the pool, and our teens safe behind the wheel, and shows us many other ways we can take control of our own safety and get through the day in one piece.
