Bestselling author and award-winning adventurer Ross Edgley has been studyingÿthe art of resilienceÿfor years, applying all he has learned to become the first person in history to swim around Great Britain, breaking multiple world records. Now Ross focuses on mental strength, stoicism and the training needed to create an unbreakable body. Ross Edgley famously ran a marathon pulling a 1.4-tonne car and climbed a rope the height of Everest (8,848m), after living withÿYamabushi warrior monks in Japan and partaking in Shamanic pain rituals with fire ants in the Amazon jungle.ÿOn his epic 1,780-mile journey around Great Britain, which lasted 157 days, Ross swam through giant jellyfish, arctic storms, 'haunted' whirlpools and polluted shipping lanes, going so hard, and so fast, his tongue fell apart. Ross's previous book,ÿThe World's Fittest Book, was a Sunday Times No.1 bestseller and explored the science of physical fitness. Now, inÿThe Art of Resilience, Ross uses his swim experience and other amazing endurance feats, where he managed toÿovercome seemingly insurmountable pain, hardship and adversity, to study the performance of extreme athletes, military and fitness specialists and psychologists to uncover the secrets of mental fitness and explore the concept of resilience, persistence, valour and a disciplined mindset in overcoming adversity. This ground-breaking bookÿrepresents a paradigm shift in what we thought the human body and mind were capable of and will give you aÿblueprint to become a tougher, more resilient and ultimately better human - whatever the challenge you face.
