Bullet Review – Risk

Ever wonder what the chances are that you’ll be killed by terrorists? Turns out they’re less than you smothering yourself in your sleep.

Also, the media is full of crap, but you knew that. As book reviewer of a small website, I’m fortunate enough to be able to choose books that interest me as subjects. For a couple of weeks, I’ve been looking at a book called Risk by a Canadian journalist named Dan Gardner. It’s about all the lovely ways the media and politicians capitalize and increase fear to save their own skins–and how people tend to react to such things so as to fuel the fire.

Check out my review, but, even better, go pick up the book and enlighten yourself. It’s about the least you can do.
