Review

Barry Moltz, AuthorSpeaker, and expert at "Getting Small Businesses Unstuck"Fear of change is a problem for all of us. Matt shows how to bring our life and career in alignment. He teaches us to aim high, accept uncertainty, commit, tolerate adversity, and seek companionship. Let Matt guide you on an adventure you never thought possible.

Terry Jaymes, Speaker, Radio and Television Host 
Adventure In Everything is more than a book. It's a lifestyle I bought into years ago and didn't even know it. Matt's ideas and encouragement will change your life from page one! Life is there. It's up to us to live it and with Matt's guidance ... we get to decide how we live it!  

Michael Port, NYTimes Best Selling Author and Speaker
The Future is uncertain. But embrace 'Adventure in Everything' you will not focus on the number of days you have left or the quantity of activities you can pack into a day, but on the quality of each day you are lucky enough to live - finding meaning, purpose, and adventure in your life.


Tucson Weekly - Book Review
This is an illuminative, inspiriting book. Like most effective self-help guides, it motivates by reminding us of important truths that we already know, but often forget. And like the very best of these books, it's a compelling testament to the value of living an authentic life.

I do not know the author nor have I been on any guided climbs with him but I have seen his website and was impressed enough to purchase his book. This book has helped me tremendously. In a perfect world everyone would buy this book and be able to tap into themselves like never before. The world would indeed be a better place...

The world is not perfect, though, and it seems Matthew can help with that, too! What is your path in life? How do you get there? Mr. Walker gives you 5 ways to make the most of your journey.

This is not a book about being a daredevil or living recklessly on the edge. It's not even about rock climbing.

Please... read the book (easy read), take his advice (no tricks here), and experience the world like it was meant to be. I cannot imagine any aspect of your life that would not benefit from his profound interpretations.

Thanks again, Mr. Walker!

Format: Paperback
I love this book! I wasn't sure if it was for me, I mean my idea of camping is slow room service, so "Adventure in Everything" was an intriguing title but a bit intimidating. I was delightedly surprised to find this book relates to the life I live. Matt Walker's stories are not only about climbing amazing mountains but also about how we live every day. I resonated with the examples and stories about ensuring that my work, where I spend so much time, has the elements of adventure and passion.

As a woman leader in predominantly male corporate settings, I need ways to keep my energy, purpose and impact at the top of the game - but I don't want to just be competitive. Matt's Element #1 of High Endeavor felt like a great way to align myself to my work. The exercises really helped me see a clearer picture of how my values and my unique talents turn work into an adventure. Now I have a daily reminder of why I love what I do and why it matters in the world.

I also really liked the way Matt talked about Element #3, Total Commitment. Sometimes I hesitate to make decisions or commitments because I am afraid I won't deliver on it "perfectly". But when I follow the book's way of making a Total Commitment, I can commit to the process of what I'm doing and be adaptive enough along the way to follow the best course - not necessarily the path I had in mind or what might look right but isn't in the long run. I think one of a leader's greatest skills is this, to be adaptive in the path they follow to success, not a pre-determined result (I mean really, my business is changing constantly, why do I get hung up on a "right way"?).

And last but certainly not least - the book was PRACTICAL, hands on tools, and not filled with a bunch of extra hoo-hah!

Having just finished Matt Walker's "Adventure in Everything", I feel a a rekindled sense of purpose and motivation to take the reigns and start creating the life of my dreams. Matt skillfully crafts a roadmap for anyone interested in living a life that is rooted in adventure and purpose. He draws from his years of leading people on life changing climbs and expeditions and condenses the many lessons he's learned along the way into an easy to work with format that I feel like ANYONE can benefit from. If you are interested in a perspective shift towards a life full of adventure and excitement, then read this book, work with the many exercises and watch your life become the one of your dreams!

I was checking out at a book store at the Omega Institutue and saw this book next to the register. I thumbed through it quickly, put it down, and the picked it up and added it to my order. I felt compelled to buy it, without knowing much about it.

Fast forward to my life now, I'm 30 and am a full time teacher wanting to go back for another Masters in Neuroscience. Reading this book inspired me to look past the hefty debt I would accrue in returning to school, and focus on what I wanted to do. I feel so much more at ease with my choice and my new adventure ahead! I am so glad I picked up this book!

I consider myself someone who has always tried to find adventure in my day to day life, but have never found that consistency that I craved. What I found was not just a great recipe on how to achieve this, but how it can be sustainable if you're ready to make changes in your personal or professional life. This book offered a little bit of everything - stories that inspire, principles that are simple and insightful, and a compelling eagerness to learn more with each turn of the page. If you are looking for adventure in any aspect of your daily life, coming from an author that offers encouragement and honesty, buy this book! It's a small investment, with a BIG RETURN!

Format: Paperback
Let me start with some caveats.

I met Matt through twitter and went on one of his Inner Passage rock climbing expeditions. It was a life altering experience. I developed an even more open, receptive attitude toward my anxiety. This occurred while bagging some multi-pitch peaks and being quite fearful of heights on the rock face. Matt was an amazing guide and his encouragement and attitude emanate through the pages of his book.
Upon reading this book, I was humbled to discover that he used our conversations in the book. All this being said, I told Matt that I never endorse books until I read and evaluate them. Thus, you will not find my endorsement anywhere inside or outside of the book.

Having just finished this brief treatise, I can confidently claim that this book is fantastic. If you are thinking about purchasing this book, you might read the table of contents and decide against it. After all, there are tons of books about great companionship, accomplishment, and distress tolerance. This would be a mistake as Matt's gift is tying these individual elements together into a coherent framework for how people can live better. His writing style is smooth, so expect to breeze through chapters (in a good way). His stories are poignant, so expect to feel motivated. His writing exercises are poignant, so if you decide to do them, expect to learn a bit more about yourself in terms of that challenging gap between the present and ideal self. And if you don't want to do the writing exercises, the quality of the book will be unaffected.

Too many people complain that their adults lives are boring and lacking the adventure of childhood. This is a book about reclaiming qualities that for no good reason, are abandoned in adulthood. A simple, powerful message.
