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.

A beautifully written book that brings light and pragmatic advice to topics of grief, death, loss and tragedy. I was often moved to tears by the stories of terrible loss but equally moved by the kindness and bravery described.

I feel more hopeful that I might be able to accompany my friends and family better in moments of loss and grief and that I am better equipped to deal with any blindsides that come my way. Thanks Leigh.
