Through a series of nine wonderfully rich portraits, Polly Morland takes us on a journey through the world of risk, looking not at the extremes or exceptions, but at the routine risks we accept and embrace as part of our everyday lives, often unconsciously. The stories in Risk Wise address fundamental questions about risk and our perceptions about risk-taking. It argues that being risk wise--the ability to understand and accept risk as a force for good--is an essential part of the human experience and a route to living a full and rewarding life.
