Author event: Kayt Sukel, THE ART OF RISK

Public speaker and science writer, Kayt Sukel, will be discussing her latest book THE ART OF RISK.

Is there a correlation between a professional poker player and a base jumper? Kayt Sukel believes there is. In her latest book, The Art of Risk, she compares and contrasts the lives of real world risk-taking successes. Buffeted by cutting edge laboratory studies, Kayt explains how, where, when and why we take the risks we do.

You may recognize Kayt from her 2014 TEDMED talk "Eliminating Penalties for Playing Out of Bounds." or from her first book, This is Your Brain on Sex (Simon & Schuster, 2013).
