The secret to a good life, as seen from the ice, is to keep your joys simple.
Erling Kagge was the first man in history to reach all the Earth’s poles by foot — the North, the South and the summit of Everest. In Philosophy for Polar Explorers he brings together the wisdom and expertise he has gained from the expeditions that have taken him to the limits of Earth, and of human endurance. In sixteen meditative but practical lessons — from cultivating an optimistic outlook, to getting up at the right time, to learning to find focus and comfort in solitude, to setting your own compass — Erling Kagge reveals what survival in the most extreme conditions can teach us about how to lead a meaningful life.
