Summary

Surviving in the wild takes a great deal of strength. Often faced with frozen tundra, sweltering deserts, humid jungles, perilous mountains and fast-flowing rivers, Megan Hine is no stranger to perilous conditions. Whilst leading expeditions and bushcraft survival courses, and in her work on television shows such as Bear Gryll's Mission Survive and Running Wild, she has explored the corners of the globe in pursuit of adventure.
Faced with the toughest of conditions - bad weather, lack of food and being in the presence of predators - is the ultimate test of character, and often the biggest challenge to overcome is in the head. In these situations the human brain is simultaneously the greatest asset and biggest liability. Not everyone is suited to the great outdoors, and when danger calls many aren't as well equipped to survive; no amount of top-of-the-range kit will save you if you don't have the right frame of mind.
Here Megan Hine examines the human ability and instinct for survival, showing us how others have developed the attitudes and attributes to thrive in the most dangerous situations and how those same attitudes and attributes help them confront problems and obstacles at work and at home. Being chased through the jungle by armed opium farm guards, abseiling past bears and lighting fires with tampons - Megan has seen and done it all. In Mind of a Survivor, she takes you along for a series of life-and-death adventures and shows you what happens to people when they are pushed to their limits. Inspirational rather than instructional, Mind of a Survivor examines the human ability and instinct for survival, sharing the life tools that Megan uses and showing how they can as easily be applied to more domestic everyday life - from careers to relationships, from overcoming adversity to decision making.
Filled with Megan's own experiences, Mind of a Survivor is packed full of adventure and can help people survive in any situation and cope with whatever life throws at them.

No science but great story

Although there is little science in this book, more a collection of Megan's stories feom her short life. but she's already experienced more than most of us will in 100 years and her writing is very thought provoking. amazing book and well worth a read.

Interesting, thought provoking <br />

Adventure and exploration take over my life to such an extent that I live a very different life to my female colleagues, friends and family which sometimes makes me feel quite lonely and isolated from normal things. I would listen to Megan and really identify with things she described which instantly made me feel stronger and realise I do have a quiet but strong character. She's brilliant.
