“Reflecting on all the chapters of the book, the reader is made aware of the breadth of the phenomena of adventure: from survival expeditions in wilderness, through soul-seeking journeys, to its commercialized forms that have gained popularity in post-modern times. The multidisciplinary Book Reviews / Annals of Tourism Research 47 (2014) 96–106 105 approach is what greatly augments the contents of this book as it is evident that authors have sought to find innovative methods in order to better understand the concept of adventure. However, the book undoubtedly invites readers to question their own practices and to create their own definition of adventure as a starting point for their explorations.” – Jelena M.
