This is good stuff. This week I'm planning a post based on a book I'm reading about the theory of the improbable and how that affects our appetite for risk.

It also makes us underestimate certain other occurrences and thus unprepared. The challenge will be to make risk management theory sound sexy and interesting ;-)

Personally, I think that what's killing people is worrying about what's killing people.

"I'll eat when I'm hungy, I'll drink when I'm dry. If the moonshine don't kill me, I'll live 'til I die"

Have you read the book "Risk" by David Ropek and George Gray?

Was published by Houghton-Mifflin in 2003, but is still a
quite interesting and
useful read.
