About this product
- DescriptionMountaineers, astronauts, polar explorers, long-distance solo-sailors... why do some people thrive in extreme and hostile environments? Using numerous examples and personal accounts plus the latest psychological research, Emma Barrett and Paul Martin investigate the traits that makes some people succeed, and the lessons we can all learn.

They both have a solid track record in behavioural science research and many years' experience of making behavioural science research accessible to a non-specialist readership. Emma Barrett was awarded the OBE in 2010, partly in recognition of her achievements in translating research findings into practical advice and guidance for non-specialist audiences.

Paul Martin is the author of several popular science books, including The Sickening Mind (Harper Collins) and Making Happy People (Fourth Estate).
