Adventure Revolution: The life-changing power of choosing challenge is the first book to explain why adventure is essential to wellbeing. It puts an energizing and groundbreaking case for ditching the living room in favour of a longer, happier, and more adventurous life.
Drawing on lessons the author learnt from more than two decades of leading groups into the wilderness around the globe, and her own research with modern hunter-gatherers, and the latest findings in neuroscience and psychology; this groundbreaking book shows how adventure has the power to transform the timid into the confident, the addicted into the recovering, and the lost into the intentionally wandering.
