One of the world's most accomplished explorers, Erling Kagge was the first person to climb Mount Everest and walk to the North and South Poles. In this intelligent meditation on what makes us tick, he uses the wisdom and expertise he has gained on his travels to reflect on life, nature, and humanity. Simple things like getting up early and accepting failure can make a difference, Kagge suggests, whether battling an arctic storm or getting stuck in traffic. Punctuated with lyrical stories from Kagge's own experiences and illustrated with color photographs from his journeys, this book invites us to treat life like a grand exploration and illuminates the possibilities that await us when we do.
