Description


Survivor has proven to be one of the most popular shows to ever hit television screens. What has this pop culture phenomenon shown us -- by placing a few hundred people on islands around the world -- about the psychological make-up of the average American? In Psychology of Survivor, the third installment of BenBella Books's Psychology of Popular Culture series, leading psychologists -- and fans of Survivor -- unite to offer up their expertise on the show that started the reality show craze. From why macho alpha males rarely win to stress and body image, from situational ethics to the dreaded Rob Cestaries factor, Psychology of Survivor is a broad look at cutting-edge psychological issues through the lens of Survivor. The tribe has spoken -- Psychology of Survivor is the best book for Survivor fans and psychology enthusiasts alike.
