If I was put in a survival situation and told I could choose any person in the world to come and help me to get out, I’d choose Mike. His combination of calmness, curiosity, empathy and genuine competence in his field would provide both comfort and a practical path. I might carry this book around just in case I end up in trouble - maybe if I rub the cover and say his name, he’ll appear! If you don’t have the good fortune of knowing Mike personally, this book will have to do.

Thrive and Adapt is a gem of a book. An adept storyteller, survival expert Mike House engages us with tales based on his own experiences, keen observation of human behaviour and case studies. The genius of this book lies in its simplicity and practical application to our real world, revealing the ‘why’ behind the way we think and behave in different situations, and the ‘how’ to choose the best response to enable us to thrive and adapt.
