Summary

For the past 25 years, Belinda Kirk's professional life has revolved around adventure. She's seen it change people first hand: turning the timid into the confident, the addicted into the recovering and the lost into the intentionally wandering. As a force for change, adventure can be powerful like few others.

This audiobook is about this transformational power and the first to explore why adventure is essential to our wellbeing. From managing anxiety and overcoming fear, to finding self-worth and building interpersonal connections, to being happier, healthier and more playful, Adventure Revolution draws lessons from more than two decades of experience leading groups into the wilderness around the globe. Illuminated with Belinda's personal narrative, her own research with modern hunter-gatherers and the latest findings in neuroscience and behaviour, Adventure Revolution presents a compelling case for ditching the living room in favour of a longer, happier and more adventurous life.

Intriguing book, full of fascinating and heart warming anecdotes.

Adventure revolution provides us with the total justification to embark on a life of adventure and fun (type 1 and type 2). If you don’t want to embark on an adventure macro or micro after reading/listening to this book enjoy your life of limited stimulation. Brings to mind an advertising slogan “Less stuff, more stories”.

An inspiration

The stories were epic, and if this doesn't inspire you to get out more, I don't know what I will.

A eye opening book on the importance of adventure

Belinda Kirk is a legend but what is fascinating about this book is how she shows everyone of us can be an adventurer in our own right. The link between adventure, well-being and mental health is quite strikingly illustrated. This is a brilliant book with deep insights explained in a lucid way.

Boring.....

.... And not very motivational at all.
Really basic stuff which fails to stir.

Sensational. Must read!!

This book is brilliant. Loved every minute of it. The statistics are mind blowing. Really inspirational and makes you realise so much about what you could be doing to live a happier life and to be better. I wish for everyone to read this for their own sake and any children they have and know!

A must read

Like a lot of people I like the outdoors. Didn’t understand why I needed to push myself to near exhaustion in all kinds of good and bad weather and yet felt good after doing this. Well this book not only explained the reason why but also explained why it’s so important to become immersed in adventure. The facts are backed up by an enormous amount of research that Belinda has done. It is the best book I have ever had the pleasure in reading and it has encouraged me to become more involved in adventure. The book also made me look at how important it is to let my children experience some of the freedom I had as a child and try to encourage them to get out and adventure like kids should do. So please read or listen to this book. The author not only speaks with experience but has backed it up by research.

Great ideas, well presented if a little dry.

Resonated with me, on wrapping our children in cotton wool. Loved the idea of stepping out of our comfort zones.
