Emergency by Neil Strauss: Summary, Notes, and Lessons - Nat Eliason
In Denial of Death by Ernest Becker, we fear our own obliteration so we pursue “immortality projects” that will outlast us, whether it be our work, our children, the way we affect others, a good seat in the afterlife, or hope.

Being in and around motor vehicles is the most dangerous thing we do, there were 45k deaths from motor vehicles, only 12k from guns. More people kill themselves with them, 17k. Suicide is much more common, 32k, than homicide, 18k.

Terrorism is extremely rare compared to all the other ways you could die.
