Synopsis

The secret to a good life, seen from the ice, is to keep your joys simple. 'Erling Kagge transforms and consoles us' Alain de Botton


Erling Kagge was the first man in history to reach all of the Earth's poles by foot - the North, the South, and the summit of Everest. In Philosophy for Polar Explorers he brings together the wisdom and expertise he has gained from the expeditions that have taken him to the limits of the earth, and of human endurance.


This is the essential guide to the art of exploration. In sixteen meditative but practical lessons - from cultivating an optimistic outlook, to getting up at the right time, to learning to find focus and comfort in solitude - Erling Kagge reveals what survival in the most extreme conditions can teach us about how to lead a meaningful life. Wherever we may be headed.


'As an explorer Erling Kagge is world class; as a writer he is equally gifted' Sir Ranulph Fiennes


'Erling Kagge is a philosophical adventurer - or perhaps an adventurous philosopher' The New York Times


'An author for our noisy times, full of a rare and deeply redemptive languor and perspective' Alain de Botton
