Brilliantly covers life at the limits
on 20 April 2013
There aren't many people better qualified to write about the extremes of human survival than Kevin Fong. His engaging and enthusiastic personality comes across as he brings to life human stories from the edge on every page.
As a final year medical student I found the medical aspects particularly interesting and of course relevant to starting work as a doctor in a few months' time. But there's plenty for everyone here - the science is made accessible throughout the book and regardless of your background or area of interest the whole book is captivating. He covers survival in the cold, diving, trauma and of course space exploration with much more besides. I can't recommend it highly enough to anyone with an interest in medicine, space, human exploration or even just science in general. You'll love it.
