Mountaineers, 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.
Emma Barrett and Paul Martin are fascinated by the complexities of human lives, and passionate about communicating scientific research that may help to make lives better. 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 an Honorary Senior Research Fellow at Imperial College London. Paul is the author of more than twenty academic papers and co-author of a student textbook of animal behaviour. Paul Martin is the author of several popular science books, including The Sickening Mind (Harper Collins) and Making Happy People (Fourth Estate).
