520    The modern world can be a dangerous place, filled with 
       fast cars, smartphones, new drugs, and thrill sports. 
       Meanwhile, we humans are as fragile as ever. In fact, 
       after a century of steady improvement, injuries and 
       accidental deaths are on the rise.  Steve Casner has 
       devoted his career to studying the psychology of safety, 
       and he knows there's not a safety warning we won't ignore 
       or a foolproof device we can't turn into an implement of 
       disaster.  Careful helps us understand why we do things 
       like insist on the fat-free salad dressing but then text 
       and drive. Casner explains the psychological traps that 
       can lead us to the scene of an accident. They're the same 
       whether you're a pilot, a Hollywood stuntwoman, a parent, 
       or the owner of a clogged dishwasher you're trying to fix 
       with a screwdriver. Then Casner shows us how and when the 
       injuries happen, so we know exactly what we should really 
       be worrying about.
