Publisher's Summary

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, Mind of a Survivor examines the human ability and instinct for survival, sharing the life tools that Megan 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 Megan's 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.

Surviving Adversity

A book narrated by the Author.
An excellent book about Survival, which I find interesting, that's why I purchased it.
For me, it would have been five 5 stars if she spoke just a tad more slowly.
It's just a fad of mine.
Otherwise a good book, perhaps overpriced too.

Megan is one of the toughest in the business!

Devoured in one session ! ( On a hike - and got me pumped). Megan's life as an adventurist and survivalist is breathtaking, and inspiring. I love this genre but all too often there is a lot of ego - and macho arrogance! Megan is clearly tough as nails, but humble and a natural born leader. Glad she chose to read her own book, shes upbeat and funny at times, there are some good lessons on survival and leadership but not the usual cliches.

What an absolutely truly amazing listen. Megan Hike is a powerhouse of a woman!

I ordered the physical book before I finished the audiobook it was that good. Now I can go through the book and highlight parts and take notes too. I can only hope to be close to as great as Megan Hine at surviving as she is one day. Fantastic listen Megan, thank you for such an inspirational, informal and entertaining resource. Every minute was amazing. Well worth my time. More please 👍
