The Milwaukee-based Porchlight Books has named YOU ARE WHAT YOU RISK: The New Art and Science of Navigating an Uncertain World an Editor’s Choice selection.
“I remember reading Wucker’s book The Gray Rhino in early 2016 and thinking, “there is something different here.” She is from Wisconsin, and there was something about her voice that felt familiar, but her book didn’t fit neatly into any category. It was a topic that traversed the globe but was intensely personal at the same time. If I could describe the topic of that book in one word, it would be reality,” Dylan Schleicher writes in his Editor’s Choice review of YOU ARE WHAT YOU RISK for Porchlight Books.
“Beyond understanding risk on a personal, an academic, and even a geopolitical level, what I think readers will be left with is a better understanding of the topic that Wucker ultimately uncovers—reality. To live in reality is to understand risk, and that it is no longer confined to our daily lives or the life of the communities, countries, and nations we live in. We live in a Risk Society, and the risks caused by human activity span the globe. To address them, we must be able to talk together, and work together.”
