What Doesn't Kill Us
How Freezing Water, Extreme Altitude, and Environmental Conditioning Will Renew Our Lost Evolutionary StrengthBook - 2017
What Doesn't Kill Us uncovers how just about anyone can reclaim a measure of our species' evolutionary strength by tapping into the things that feel uncomfortable. When we slightly reimagine how our body fits into the world, then we can condition ourselves to find resilience in unfamiliar environments. Award winning investigative journalist Scott Carney dives into the fundamental philosophy at the root of this movement in three interlocking narratives. His own journey culminates in a record bending, 28-hour climb up to the snowy peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro wearing nothing but a pair of running shorts and sneakers.
