The original title of the book: Mind of a Survivor: What the wild has taught me about survival and success

Inspirational rather than instructional, Megan Hine 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.

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. Mind of a Survivor is packed with adventures from the frozen tundra, sweltering deserts, humid jungles, perilous mountains and fast-flowing rivers and looks at the reasons why expeditions run into trouble. Bad weather, the lack of food or the presence of predators obviously play a huge part, but the greatest dangers come from within. Whether it's panic, ego, the cult of the leader, an unwillingness to take instruction (especially from a woman), tensions within the group or paralyzing fear, the human brain is simultaneously the greatest asset and biggest liability we have.

Using life-and-death examples from her own career, Megan shows you 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. She'll also share with you the times when, on solo expeditions, she doubted her own mental toughness.

Megan examines the human ability and instinct for survival sharing the life tools that she uses in order to survive and showing how they can as easily be applied to more domestic everyday life - from careers to relationships, she shares insight and advice from her own experiences that can help people survive in any situation and cope with whatever life throws at them.

I love everything about her...but mostly I love her attitude. This kind of calm, can-do mindset is useful in day-to-day life. (Lorraine Candy Sunday Times Style)Hine is the real deal. (The Times)Meg is a refreshing proposition. Her new book Mind Of A Survivor not only reflects on her own awe-inspiring experiences, but also the psychology of survival. (Telegraph)This book powerfully uncovers the layers of where people draw strength from in their time of crisis - moving and inspiring. (Bear Grylls)

    Excellent book charting Megan Hines' journey as an explorer and adventurer. Some great tips on how to get the most out of life and how to thrive not just survive in the face of challenge or adversity. And how important psychology is in the overcoming challenges. A great read from an inspirational writer with lots of great examples and life experiences.

    Very enjoyable read and lots of insight into Megan Hines motivation.I do recommend her book and encourage her to write another, perhaps targeted at out computer bound young who have little chance to feel the wind on their faces and challenge themselves

    Read about in the Sunday newspaper way before it was available. So it went straight on my wishlist. When I could finally buy it, I purchased on Kindle so that I could read straight away. What a treat - grabs you from the first paragraph and does not let you go.

    I've really enjoyed reading this book. It's an excellent combination of real life amazing stories from Megan's first hand experiences in the wild, with a great ability to be able to relate them to every day and business scenarios. A must read for any leader of any size group. I can't wait for my girls to read this when they are a bit older! Thank you so much for writing it. I can't wait for your next book!

    This is one brilliant read! Incredible anecdotes from an incredible life, so different to mine and yet made so relatable. It is a gentle exploration of a side of our minds that I have never considered before. I guess, never had to consider before, never having been in a survival situation. It certainly got me thinking about whether I have the 'mind of a survivor'. Megan Hine seems to be in one of those jobs that is incredibly underrated; I can't help being impressed by her determination to do what she loves against, at time, quite incredible odds. Huge amount of respect!This is a great read for anyone who likes real life action/adventure, anyone who has any interest in Mindfulness or Psychology, whether their own or people in general. Or, anyone who just wants to read something a bit different.I very much hope that she will write some more.

    Excellent book written with honesty and clear headed clarity. For those of us who love the wild places, this is an intuitive and perceptive look at the world and the people who live here and the lessons learnt through experience

    An excellent read which is of the beaten track. The book arrived promptly, in excellent condition and was fairly priced. An essential read for all those in commune with Nature and those contemplating it. What I would give to be on an expedition with the author!
