Description


A thoughtful, eloquent meditation on bringing adventure and exploration into your daily life, from the author of Silence and Walking

Erling Kagge is an explorer par excellence. He has accomplished things that most of us can't even imagine--for example: he's climbed Mount Everest and reached both the North and South Poles on foot. Yet in this slim, inspiring, lyrical book, he teaches us how to apply an explorer's mentality to our own daily lives. Simple things like getting up early and accepting failure can make a difference whether we are battling an arctic storm en route to the South Pole or stuck in traffic on our way to work. And larger lessons, like learning not to chase happiness and being receptive to goals, can benefit our lives enormously.

Punctuating these lessons with stories from his own life and travels, Kagge invites readers to treat life like an exploration and illuminates the possibilities that await us when we do.
