Extreme: Why Some People Thrive At The Limits
This book looks at the traits and psychological characteristics of people who put themselves in extreme situations. Some, like geologists and astronauts, explore harsh and challenging environments as part of their jobs, while others pursue intense and dangerous situations to satisfy something else, perhaps a competitive nature or a need for thrills. The chapters are arranged based on traits and skills required to be the kind of person who thrives in extremes. It also looks at what drives such people, and the solutions they use to cope with pain, physical hardship, loneliness, arguments and fear. Using many fascinating examples and personal accounts, the book takes a close look at the psychological impact on those who face these challenges, the traits that enable them to succeed, and what we can learn from their experiences.
