    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    • Author: Laurence Gonzales
    • Softcover; 318 pages
    • W.W. Norton & Company; copyright 2004

    In Deep Survival, Laurence Gonzales pulls readers to the boundary region between life and death, where they peer into the hearts, minds and souls of those who have survived seemingly impossible situations and those who have given in to death. Through careful dissection of case studies, he illuminates the essence of the true survivor—the internal battles that are waged between fear and hope, reason and emotion, despair and correct action. This gripping narrative is the first book to describe the science of survival, revealing through new psychological and neurological research the workings of the brain that motivate our actions. Applying the science of chaos theory and self-organizing systems, Gonzales shows how accidents are not random acts of God but highly organized outcomes of complex systems, repeated with inevitable frequency. You can't stop them from happening, but this book can help prevent them from happening to you!
