• As an explorer Erling Kagge is world class; as a writer he is equally gifted

    Sir Ranulph Fiennes
  • Drawing on the experiences of Kagge's extraordinary life in wild places, this is a book of great concentration

    Robert Macfarlane
  • A delightful book that explores the strange land between getting out of bed in the morning and reaching for the moon

    Tristan Gooley
  • A wonderfully deft Swiss army knife of a book. One really feels the hard won wisdom at the book's heart, the graft and nouse of life lived in arctic extremis. Kagge's preternatural energy, warmth and sagacity shine - a cool-headed polar philosopher to treasure!

    Dan Richards
  • A marvellous human being

    Chris Evans
