Aim for the brain!
The characters of The Walking Dead live in a desolate post-apocalyptic world, filled with relentless violence and death. In reality, how would such never-ending trauma affect the psyche? By understanding the psychological forces that drive the series’ action, fans can better grasp this compelling fictional universe. Which characters suffer PTSD and is there hope for them? Is the Governor a psychopath, a sociopath, or something even worse? What does Terror Management Theory tell us about what it means to fight constantly or survival?

Epic Survival: Extreme Adventure, Stone Age Wisdom, and Lessons in Living From a Modern Hunter-Gatherer
by: Gallery Books
Product rating: 5.0 with 6 reviews
Matt Graham, star of the Discovery Channel s Dual Survival
and Dude, You re Screwed
, details the physical, mental, and emotional joys and harrowing struggles of his life as a modern-day hunter-gatherer.
Early on in his life, Matt craved a return to nature. When he became an adult, he set aside his comfortable urban life and lived entirely off the land to learn from the smallest and grandest of all things. In this riveting narrative that brings together epic adventure and spiritual quest, he shows us what extraordinary things the human body is capable of when pushed to its limits.
In Epic Survival
, written with Josh Young, coauthor of five New York Times
bestsellers, Matt relays captivating stories from his life to show just how terrifying and gratifying living off the grid can be. He learns the secrets of the Tarahumara Indians that helped him run the 1,600-mile Pacific Crest Trail in just fifty-eight days and endure temperature swings of 100 degrees. He takes us with him as he treks into the wilderness to live alone for half a year, armed with nothing but a loincloth, a pair of sandals, a stone knife, and chia seeds. He recounts near-death experiences of hiking alone through the snowdrifts at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, and tells us about the time he entered a three-day Arabian horse race on foot and finished third.
Above all, Epic Survival
is a book about growing closer to the land that nurtures us. No matter how far our modern society takes us from the wilderness, the call remains. Whether you re an armchair survivalist or have taken the plunge yourself, Matt s story is both inspiration and invigoration, teaching even the most urbane among us important and breathtaking lessons.

The Colson Way: Loving Your Neighbor and Living with Faith in a Hostile World
by: Thomas Nelson
Product rating: 4.8 with 4 reviews
Live with a bold and loving faith in the public square
Chuck Colson’s life reveals that there is no division between truth and love, between embracing biblical guidance and loving one’s neighbor. The Colson Way uses Colson’s legacy and wisdom to show Christians a way of living a public faith with conviction and generosity toward all.
“A praiseworthy intellectual achievement and a gift to the Christian community.”
—Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University
“Required reading for any Christian seeking to engage in the public square.”
—Frank Wolf, Senior Distinguished Fellow, 21st Century Wilberforce initiative
“I was privileged to know and work with Chuck Colson in several respects. He was a man of character and conviction who understood that believers find themselves in ‘two cities,’ as Augustine wrote. As a member of the city of God, I have dedicated my life to strengthening the city of man. I am so thankful to see Owen Strachan’s The Colson Way celebrate this kind of vision. I commend it highly and urge pastors and churches to buy this book—and to share this vision with their people.”
“An honest, enjoyable, and eye-opening look at one of the most significant Christian leaders of the twentieth century.”
—Sean McDowell, Ph.D., author of The Fate of the Apostle

For Keeps: Meaningful Patchwork for Everyday Living
by: Lucky Spool Media
Product rating: 5.0 with 8 reviews
This book features quilts that soak up meaning through our family times together; that become heirlooms, not because of their meticulous construction, but because of the stories they tell and the stories they inspire.
Some of the projects in the book are inspired by specific activities in which stories can be created and memories made. Other projects fall into more of an inspirational category. They are beautiful, unique quilts that have been inspired by traditions that are meaningful to the author’s own family. These are lovely versatile patterns- but the inspiration accompanying each of them is meant to encourage and inspire readers to ponder new and fun ways to tighten and build their own relationships with loved ones.
