Deep Survival with Laurence Gonzales

“Trouble comes to us all.” ~ Laurence Gonzales

By Catherine Austin Fitts

This week on The Solari Report, I speak with Laurence Gonzales of LaurenceGonzales.com, author of Deep Survival: Who Lives, Who Dies and Why and Surviving Survival: the Art and Science of Resilience.

We pick up on our previous discussion with Laurence on his study of extreme wilderness experiences, Deep Survival, to explore his subsequent research for Surviving Survival about who is successful in overcoming disaster to achieve the “sweet revenge” of a long, happy life.

Laurence also describes his new book, Flight 232: A Story of Disaster and Survival, about the miraculous survival of 184 of 296 passengers on United Airlines Flight 232 in Sioux City  in 1989 – a triumph of heroism over tragedy and human ingenuity over technological breakdown,

In Money & Markets this week I will discuss current events in the news and financial worlds, as the global economy struggles with economic contraction in the developed economies and geopolitical tensions rise.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review my favorite documentary, The Endurance: Shackleton’s Legendary Antarctic Expedition. Be prepared to be inspired by the remarkable courage and leadership of Shackleton and his crew as you accompany them on one of the most astonishing survival stories ever told.

We are a people capable of great generosity, courage and strength.  As Gonzales reminds us, “trouble comes to us all.” However, when it does, we can and do tap into that greatness in us all. This week’s Solari Report is designed to remind you that it is there in you.

Talk to you Thursday!
