Mind of a Survivor

***Shortlisted for the Great Outdoors Book of the Year*** Surviving in the wild takes a great deal of strength.

***Shortlisted for the Great Outdoors Book of the Year*** 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, Megan examines the human ability and instinct for survival sharing the life tools that she 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 her 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.

Risk to create your future. Disaster can strike at any moment. Are you prepared physically, emotionally? How do you face fear, attack and conquer? Does the spiritual assist? Some of these harrowing ordeals tell of a woman on a flight that crashes in the jungle and struggles for her life as beauty emerges. A man falls from the sky without a parachute and battles to live, miles away from medical assistance. Multiple explorers face the perils of Antarctica's destruction battling storms – hunger – imminent death as we wonder how they can survive. A female in an arid Israeli town of ancient traditions attempts to move from the past to the present struggling for her and other women's rights. A man confronts the torturous elements in the Sierras, alone, in a winter storm that threatens his existence as a miracle unfolds. What actually makes the difference between those who survive and others who don’t? Turn fear, anger, and stress into focus. My personal conclusion on this journey for answers may surprise you. Here is a collection of unique true stories that reveal a new path as you learn how the ordinary do the extraordinary. REVIEWS I just finished reading the remarkable book, Survival Quest and enjoyed it immensely!! The author's personal experience and relationships enrich the authenticity of the stories. One of the master skills in life is resilience, as demonstrated by the heroes in Sally DeMasi's stories. They were optimistic individuals who were able to manage their response to catastrophic situations and find a way to succeed. We all have the capacity to learn positive, transformative skills. By building relationships, spirituality, family, self-awareness, and positive emotions, we can prepare ourselves to respond to challenges more effectively. Survivor Quest amply encourages preparation for unexpected challenges. I highly recommend Survival Quest and look forward to reading Courage Quest. Sincerely, Joan Reinhart 4-1-16 – 5 star Well written and a great read This book is amazing! It is very well written where the words jump out at you while you are reading.

‘Billy is inspirational and always humble. A giant of a man!’ – Bear Grylls 'The most experienced Special Forces soldier in recent memory. The Hard Way is brutally brilliant.' – Tom Marcus, Number One bestselling author of Soldier Spy Billy Billingham grew up tough; a grim future ahead of him offering little respite from the hostile streets he walked. Leaving school at eleven years of age, the threat of borstal hanging over his head, running with gangs in Birmingham, and almost being killed in a knife fight eventually led to Billy discovering the British armed forces at sixteen years of age. It would be the making of him. Billingham would graduate from the Royal Marine cadets to enlisting with the Parachute Regiment in 1983, where he would serve with distinction as a Patrol Commander and expert sniper. In 1991 he took on an even bigger challenge – taking the SAS course – the fearsome and secretive elite special forces unit with a well-won reputation for excellence in operating in extreme and hazardous conditions. He excelled in this life, rising to the rank of sergeant major for the regiment, and undertaking dozens of classified and extremely dangerous missions. He would ultimately serve seventeen years with the SAS, serving in countless war zones, winning a commendation for bravery and being awarded the MBE. After leaving the army he would embrace the life of a bodyguard to Hollywood stars such as Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Sir Michael Caine, Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe, before being recruited as one of the lead instructors on SAS - Who Dares Wins for television. Billy is a highly-decorated veteran; with a reputation for excellence, honesty and integrity not only supporting his comrades Ant Middleton, Jason Fox and Ollie Ollerton, but equally intimidating and inspiring the contestants who take on the gruelling challenges each week. The Hard Way details Billy’s story thus far, but will also educate and enthral those wishing to seek a challenge and conquer it – the SAS way.
