Editorial Reviews

Review

“Changes the way we think about the modern world and how everyday conveniences are eroding our understanding of what it mean to be human.”—Richard Dorment, editor-in-chief, Men’s Health

“I read
The Comfort Crisis in three straight sittings and was so motivated and inspired that I immediately made changes to my daily routines. Two months later, I've never been fitter, more self-confident, or happier. If you've been looking for something different to level up your health, fitness, and personal growth, THIS IS IT.”—Melissa Urban, Whole30 CEO and six-time New York Times bestselling author

“Entertaining and enlightening, Easter’s quest for a ‘rewilded’ diet, creative boredom, and other sensation-restoring discomforts is chock-full of solid science as well as a rollicking adventure.”
—Dan Fagin, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Toms River: A Story of Science and Salvation

“Breezy and yet bracing synthesis of tough adventures and hard science. Ironic, perhaps, for a book about how we need to challenge ourselves to be so enjoyable to read.”
—Robert Moor, New York Times bestselling author of On Trails: An Exploration

“An entertaining and thought-provoking adventure that weaves together findings from anthropology, physiology, neuroscience, and other disciplines. Easter makes a convincing case that happiness is more than the absence of cold, hunger, and boredom—in fact, a little discomfort may be exactly what we need.”
—Alex Hutchinson, New York Times bestselling author of Endure

“This revelatory, illuminating book is packed with big ideas on how our overly comfortable lives and routines have chipped away at our physical, mental, and emotional health.”
—Liz Plosser, editor-in-chief, Women’s Health

“An unconventional clarion call to swim upstream against the currents of comfort and ease that we seek and have grown unquestioningly used to. Not for the soft, or faint of heart, this appeals to the tough, or those who seek to be. A good read that challenges conventional wisdom about living life.”
—James Clapper, former U.S. Director of National Intelligence

“Shows why human greatness seldom rises from a perch of comfort and ease—and what you can do to maximize growth and fulfillment.”
—Brian L. Losey, (ret) Commander of U.S. Navy Special Warfare Command

“Made me look differently at adversity, at challenges, at discomfort. Reading it made me want to be better, and a book simply can’t deliver more than that.”
—Tamar Haspel, columnist, Washington Post
