In this book, Extreme Survival, Tougias shares what he has learned about decision making under pressure and the mindsets and techniques survivors have used to channel their energy into proactive decisions that saved their lives. He demonstrates that the same techniques can help anyone be more resilient when feeling overwhelmed or facing a seemingly insurmountable challenge in their personal or professional life. The methods shared can also be used by anyone who has an important goal – they provide inspiration and step by step practices to overcome obstacles and achieve a person’s full potential.
Tougias uses slides from some of the survival events to give the audience an edge-of-your-seat experience.
Tougias has written seven survival and rescue books, and Extreme Survival is the culmination of his life’s work of interviewing and researching the toughest survivors over the past three decades. He has interviewed over 100 people who survived against all odds, and has researched many historical figures who have achieved the near-impossible. He supplements their stories with a handful of first-person accounts from some of the toughest survivors in history.
