Teaser Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday!  It’s time for another edition of Teaser Tuesday, hosted by MizB at ShouldBeReading.  You know how this works:  pick up your current read, choose 2 teaser sentences for us, and don’t post any spoilers — it’s that simple!  Be sure to tell us a little about the book, so we are doubly intrigued.

This week, my Teaser comes from The Survivors Club: The Secrets and Science that Could Save Your Life. This has been a fascinating read so far! It’s especially interesting because I fly a lot – a lot – and I wonder about what would happen in a plane crash.  Hopefully, I will never have to use the tips I picked up.  But this particular section, about faith and the role it plays in survival, made me laugh:

“I have learned not to dismiss this kind of possibility,” he writes.  “No course in medical school taught me the proper mix of oxygen, IV fluids, and Tibetan chants to treat a subdural hematoma in below-zero temperatures on a 3-mile-high glacier.”

That would have to be a pretty specific course, wouldn’t it?  Now, tell the good doctor: what’s teasing YOU this week?

    I don’t generally read non-fiction, but I could make an exception for a book like this. I, too, often wonder what would happen in a plane crash, and love the quote.

    This does sound very interesting. I like medical stories…Thanks for visiting my blog.

  5. Comment by Kathy Martin:

    Interesting teaser! Personally, I prefer the ignorance is bliss theory. I don’t even want to think about how to survive in harrowing situations. I want to think about how to avoid them.

    Despite my love of traveling, I have an intense fear of flying. Although, this is a very interesting teaser. Thanks for stopping by my teaser!

    As you’ve been describing this book, I’ve been getting more intrigued. I love books like this, and love learning this sort of information.

    That makes two non-fiction books from the Teasers today that I really want to read — yours, and the one on math that Puss Reboots quoted from. Excellent!

    My own teaser is at Bookishgal.

    LOL — what a great teaser! Sorry not to have made it by yesterday — severe weather kept me offline most of the day.

  23. Comment by Miranda:

    That sounds like a very interesting read – one my husband could get into BUT I have a feeling it would make me even more nervous to fly.

    My teaser is smack in the middle of a fight scene here…
