Synopsis

Inspirational rather than instructional, Megan Hine takes you along for a series of life-and-death adventures and shows you what happens to people when they are pushed to their limits. Being chased through the jungle by armed opium farm guards, abseiling past bears and lighting fires with tampons, Megan has seen and done it all. Mind of a Survivor is packed with adventures from the frozen tundra, sweltering deserts, humid jungles, perilous mountains and fast-flowing rivers and looks at the reasons why expeditions run into trouble. Bad weather, the lack of food or the presence of predators obviously play a huge part, but the greatest dangers come from within. Whether it's panic, ego, the cult of the leader, an unwillingness to take instruction (especially from a woman), tensions within the group or paralyzing fear, the human brain is simultaneously the greatest asset and biggest liability we have.Using life-and-death examples from her own career, Megan shows you how others have developed the attitudes and attributes to thrive in the most dangerous situations, and how those same attitudes and attributes help them confront problems and obstacles at work and at home. She'll also share with you the times when, on solo expeditions, she doubted her own mental toughness. Megan examines the human ability and instinct for survival sharing the life tools that she uses in order to survive and showing how they can as easily be applied to more domestic everyday life - from careers to relationships, she shares insight and advice from her own experiences that can help people survive in any situation and cope with whatever life throws at them.
