About the Author

Erling Kagge, born in 1963, is one of the world's most accomplished living explorers. He was the first in history to achieve the hat trick of the North Pole, the South Pole and the summit of Mount Everest. He has sailed across the Atlantic, around Cape Horn, to the Antarctic and to the Galápagos Islands. Kagge is also a major collector of Russian icons and contemporary art. He spent nineteen years at school and in university, but this book is not about what he learned at school. Philosophy for Polar Explorers is a bestseller in Norway. Erling Kagge draws on experience from his own expeditions, the art world, the publishing industry, and family life. He uses references from popular culture, the history of philosophy, surfing, famous adventures and the world of contemporary art.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Dan Bergevin VINE VOICE on December 1, 2008
Format: Paperback
This is one of those rare books that gives depth of meaning and a wider range of applicability with age. The more you read it, the more you will learn about yourself.

I would put this book on par with Paul Arden's first two books as well as Jack Foster's book How to Get Ideas. While one could argue the individual merits of any of these books against the others, they all have extremely valuable things to say on a very personal and practical level.

How anyone could give this book only one star is beyond me. It is infinitely more useful than its price would suggest, and if any negative reviewer bothered to apply the lessons in this book instead of just ponder them, they would realize this as well.
