Do you know that people that escaped the world trade center during 9/11, sat at their cubicle on average for at least full 6 minutes after the building was hit! The reason being, when you're in the moment, your brain tried to "normalize" the situation, and refused to believe some disaster has happened!  In this episode, I once again have Amanda Ripley, American Journalist, and Author, on to talk about one of her older books, The Unthinkable: Who Survives When Disaster Strikes - and Why. We breakdown the 9/11 stories, what are the trait of the people that can "function" during a disaster and intense situation, also what can we do to prepare ourselves for said situation. My new book Skip The Line is out! Make sure you get a copy wherever you get your new book! Join You Should Run For President 2.0 Facebook Group, and we discuss why should run for president. I write about all my podcasts! Check out the full post and learn what I learned at Thanks so much for listening!
