A lesson that can be learned from this book and video is to think ahead. This is because man in the story does not think ahead. The story shows this when it says "...he was without imagination". This means that he was unable to imagine the possible dangers of traveling alone in the cold. Another way time where the author shows this is when he says " It did not lead him to meditate upon his frailty as a creature of temperature" This shows that i lack of imagination might lead to danger. The final way that the author shows this is when the story says " Fifty degrees below zero to him was just precisely fifty degrees below zero." That shows that the man is not considering possible safety concerns.
