Extreme: Why Some People Thrive at the Limits by Emma Barrett & Paul Martin

Extreme: Why Some People Thrive at the Limits - Emma Barrett, Paul Martin


This is an absolutely fascinating look at the physical and psychological challenges experienced by those in extreme environments (space travel, mountaineering, Arctic expeditions, etc.). I am most definitely not made of the right stuff for life on the edge, but I am in awe of those that are.
