I'm almost finished with the book but came here to see if anyone else was a little put off by the narration. So it's not just me! I've loved Scott Brick's narration every other time I've heard him, but this time he's over the top. The story is dramatic enough without "help."
Aside from that, it is indeed a dramatic and interesting story. I may buy the paper book for a re-read, especially if it contains the photographs described by the author. I've scoured the net looking for them and no luck.
Close to the top.
I bought it for the survival stories, but was surprised how the author was able to tie everything into normal-life crises and I could relate to it on a whole new level.
I'm not sure if I have. He was very good here.
I would have enjoyed this book if it was nothing but a collection of disaster/survival stories but when he started connecting mental attitudes of survivors to situations us non-adventurer types might encounter it was like a lightbulb going on over my head.
I learned a ton from this book and feel better equipped to deal with anything from losing a job to getting lost in the wilderness. Will be reading this one again and again.
Only negative was a bit too much about his dad. But it's his book and he idolizes his dad (for good reason) so I really have no problem with it.
