Narrator Tavia Gilbert's voice is perfect for this intelligent exploration of risk by an international crisis analyst. Gilbert's mature, assertive tone fits the author's command of her topic. Even when sentences are packed with information, Gilbert's flawless phrasing makes them clear. Michele Wucker examines how gender and age, cultural and family norms, and economic status impact how we view and handle risk. With refreshing, often hip, writing, she explains the perceptual flaws that cloud our ability to grasp the chances we take in life. We can actively bet on uncertain outcomes (day-trading stocks, driving recklessly), or we can accept risk passively by avoiding medical checkups. Either way, this enlightening lesson is full of insights and strategies for seeing the risks we take more clearly. T.W.
