How to Live Dangerously: Why We Should All Stop Worrying, and Start Living

In a similar vein to the book Freakonomics (A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything), How to Live Dangerously is a wonderful book whose power lies in making you think. It’s a “take a step back” look at modern life, and perhaps it’s most potent theme is that taking risks often makes life safer.

If you’re one of those people who gets annoyed at the “may contain nuts” warning on peanuts, or know somebody who won’t let their children out of the house in case they get kidnapped [apparantly, you’d have to lock them out of the house every day for 186,000 years before they were abducted (and even then you’d get them back within 24 hours)], you’ll want this book.
