If you are thinking to yourself, "Maybe this isn't such a hot idea." chances are that you are right. Potential danger lurks around every corner, and we usually avoid it, but all of us could use a field guide to improve our odds. Sometimes misfortune stems from nothing more than being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Other times the woes of life could be avoided if we understood the real risk of what we are about to do. Think Twice: Safety Lessons from the ER is collection of bad ideas compiled by interviewing thousands of emergency department patients who had to learn things the hard way. Read it twice to discover your ounce of prevention and then some, or read it just to be entertained by the sometimes hilarious mistakes people make.
