Your Guide to Deadly Risk

Here is the gritty and granular truth behind the wagers we make with our lives every single day - and, sometimes, as it turns out, just once in a lifetime. What are your chances of living through the next 24 hours? This week? This month? This decade? Will your job kill you? Your car kill you? Your spouse kill you? Or will your own bad habits kill you? And how does where you live increase or decrease your risk? Or will a rogue asteroid just kill us all? You Bet Your Life applies to you, the individual, the analytical approach insurance companies use to calculate risk: actuarial science. The result is a comprehensive, encyclopedic, real-world assessment of the risks we take every day of our all-too-finite lives.
