9781781254486: Risk Wise: Nine Everyday Adventures

Through a series of nine wonderfully rich portraits, Polly Morland takes us on a journey through the world of risk, looking not at the extremes or exceptions, but at the routine risks we accept and embrace as part of our everyday lives, often unconsciously. The stories in Risk Wise address fundamental questions about risk and our perceptions about risk-taking. It argues that being risk wise—the ability to understand and accept risk as a force for good—is an essential part of the human experience and a route to living a full and rewarding life.

Review :

A great project ... through the variety of interesting stories, we see the colour and sophistication of people's reasoning. -- Michael Blastland * BBC Focus * Morland's brisk and thought-inducing book takes a forensic look at nine examples of modern risk, and on the way delivers acute and entertaining insights ... absorbing ... This is altogether a delightful book. A dose of measured sanity in an often dotty world. It should be required reading for the next education secretary, and I shall give it to all the parents in my family. -- Sally Vickers * Observer *

Description du livre Profile Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. État : New. Main. Language: English . Brand New Book. Risk often gets a bad press. From the seemingly unnecessary actions of extreme sportspeople to the excessive risk appetites of serial entrepreneurs, the term risky is often seen as synonymous with reckless , foolhardy or even downright dangerous. But could any of us live in a world without risk, and would it be desirable to do so? Through a series of nine wonderfully rich pen portraits, Polly Morland takes us on a journey through the world of risk, looking not at the extremes or exceptions, but at the routine risks we accept and embrace as part of our everyday lives, often unconsciously. Meet the families who have lived happily on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius for generations; the Paris Opera ballet dancer facing up to the physical, psychological and reputational risks her profession demands; the New York City forensic engineer for whom being first on the scene is just part of the day job. And marvel at the parents and playworkers who every day balance the risks and rewards of how much autonomy and independence to afford growing children. The stories in Risk Wise address fundamental questions about risk and our perceptions about risk-taking. It argues that being risk wise - the ability to understand and accept risk as a force for good - is an essential part of the human experience and a route to living a full and rewarding life.
