Summary from Amazon
Written for adventurers and non-adventurers alike, Jonathan Wunrow’s collection of quotes and insights will inspire thrill seekers and risk takers of all sorts, encouraging personal exploration, guidance, and the ultimate adventure: inward. Through his own experiences as an avid mountain climber, Wunrow and his work use quotes to explore the nature of why extreme sports enthusiasts do what they do, and how their risk taking impacts them and those around them. The 15 topics explored in ‘Adventure Inward’ offer perspectives on life, death, purpose, and meaning, not just for risk takers and extreme sports enthusiasts, but for people of all walks of life.
Adventure Inward is a wonderful book that I enjoyed reading. The author does a great job of explaining many existential issues oncerning life, death, and one’s purpose. I really liked the quotes that were about one’s path in life. One particular quote written by Antoine de Saint-Exupery resonated with me: “It is in your act that you exist, not in your body. Your act is yourself, and there is no other you.” The quote refers to an individual’s calling in life. My calling in life is writing, and for me, the act of writing is something that reveals my true or authentic self. I would definietly recommend this book to readers who like extreme sports and also to anyone interested in contemplating life’s mysteries.
