"The Essential Armchair Guidebook to Winning Survivor"


CLEVELAND, Tenn., Aug. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Publisher Brio Press, Minneapolis, MN announced this week the launch of 'The Essential Armchair Guidebook to Winning Survivor, by Survivor aficionado, Larry Richardson, on September 1st, 2011 in hard copy and eBook.

Learn the strategies of winning in the TV game--or in life--from persuasion communications and hostage negotiations expert Larry Richardson, Ph.D., author of "The Essential Armchair Guidebook to Winning Survivor," a new release from Brio Press (Minneapolis, MN). On Saturday, September 3, 2-4 p.m., the local author will share strategy secrets and sign books at the Hamilton Place Mall Barnes & Noble, 2100 Hamilton Place Boulevard, Chattanooga, Tennessee. He will give away a copy of his book and will discuss his view that "Every episode of Survivor is a teachable moment about human behavior, especially when people are under duress. It's a microcosm of human dynamics in today's society. It's also darn good fun!"

"The Essential Armchair Guidebook to Winning Survivor" is required reading for those who want to get the most out of viewing the game or anyone thinking about competing in the reality television series. In this 206-page guide, Richardson analyzes the first 21 seasons of Survivor, tracks the successful strategies of each season's winner, and reveals the do's and don'ts from the 371 players who have faced the Tribal Council.

From his perspective as a Survivor aficionado and interpersonal communications educator, Dr. Richardson's expertise in hostage negotiating and persuasion theory fueled his interest in this reality show, where players must persuade their fellow contestants to vote off other contestants in search of the million dollar prize. Richardson breaks down the game into its three phases, and explains the group dynamics and mind games at play. He presents the essential strategies needed to make a deep run in the game, as well as common mistakes to avoid, in a humorous, easy-to-read format, complete with examples, anecdotes, and illustrations from the first 21 seasons. Readers of his book will never look at Survivor the same way again.
