*Honor Wilson-Fletcher MBE, CEO British Exploring Society*

A really enjoyable, inspiring and convincing book. It wins the argument for seeking adventure in life
*Tristan Gooley*

A fascinating and convincing manifesto about the importance of adventure for all of us. I thoroughly enjoyed ADVENTURE MIND. The writing is really engaging and a perfect balance of anecdotes, explanations and science. As an academic working in this area I was really impressed by how thoroughly researched the book was and how convincingly it argues for why adventure experiences are so powerful and important. I challenge you to read this book and not immediately start trying to fit some more adventure into your life and the lives of those around you. There are some really nice, realistic, practical examples of how to get everyday adventures at the end of the book too. I have been recommending this book to all my friends and colleagues!
*Helen Dodd, Professor of Child Psychology, University of Exeter*

An inspiring and enjoyable book with an important and groundbreaking new message. From her unrivalled experience of leading groups, Belinda shows us that adventure - whether it be a simple overnight camp in Britain or white water rafting on the Zambezi River - can transform us
*Tom Kemp, Emeritus Fellow of St John's College, Oxford University*

ADVENTURE MIND provides the reader with an in-depth connection to what adventure can mean to a person's life. Using a wide variety of references and examples, the book presents an exploration of the benefits that adventure activities and experiences can be experienced in a personally relevant and intrinsically meaningful way
*Alan Ewert, Professor Emeritus and former Patricia and Joel Meier Endowed Chair in Outdoor Leadership at Indiana University, named one of the ‘World’s Top 2% Scientists’ by Stanford University in 2022*
