About this product
- DescriptionHow do individuals cope in extreme environments such as outer space or the wastes of Antarctica? In Extreme, Emma Barrett and Paul Martin use many engaging examples and personal accounts to look at the psychological impact on those who face these environments, the traits that enable some people to succeed, and what we can all learn from them.
- Author BiographyDr Emma Barrett holds a PhD in psychology from the University of Birmingham and is Honorary Researcher in Psychology at Lancaster University.
