'Don't Die Hesitating' is a ground-breaking seminal work on the deep psychology of survival. The book has little to do with the equipment we carry in our rucsacs - everything to do with what experience we have in the outdoors as professional practitioners, and how we bring that experience into play when the muck hits the fan. From being sternly critical of those who purport to be outdoorsmen and women who merely play at it: buying all the gear and looking at tv programmes to then call themselves 'outdoorsmen' to getting the harsh message across that we need to 'switch-on' to our immediate environment, this book has, as expected, stirred meaningful discussion amongst professionals to make all healthier more useful individuals when the going gets tough.

What you'll read here is real-life experience often  in the 'white-heat' of dealing with trauma and remoteness, and how the brain manages us.

Within the book is advice for outdoor professionals, protocols for use in an emergency, and anecdotes. Just remember: second-hand experience is not experience. 

All of this is based on 44 years of instructing and taking the lead in remote wilderness emergency situations and/or urban crises.

108 pages.
