Whether via the numerous media reports, 60 Minutes specials, Women's Weekly cover stories or her first book, Everything To Live For, we know about the why, how and what of that fateful day in September 2011. We know how she died four times on the operating table and her tortuous road to recovery. We've had a glimpse of the love of her boyfriend, Michael, that sustained her, and seen hints of the inner-strength that has made her one of the most admired women in the country.

I loved this because it reminded me of how we perform our best when faced with adversity. The only negatives were some of the writing was repetitive and I wish Turia read it. However it would have been a task. I just didn’t like the intonation of the readers performance.

As a journalist, Leigh Sales often encounters people experiencing the worst moments of their lives in the full glare of the media. But one particular string of bad news stories - and a terrifying brush with her own mortality - sent her looking for answers about how vulnerable each of us is to a life-changing event. What are our chances of actually experiencing one? What do we fear most and why? And when the worst does happen, what comes next? In this wise and layered audiobook, Leigh talks intimately with people who've faced the unimaginable, from terrorism to natural disaster to simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Honest vulnerable candour. Excellent concise story telling, respectful towards contributors and the deceased and great performance by Leigh. The only disappointing thing was the audio mix. Surely the tech could have faded out the throat swallowing. For some reason I really noticed it in this audio.
