Bold Endeavors: Lessons from Polar and Space Exploration
This classic reference is considered the best single source of information on how to facilitate human adjustment and performance in long-term isolation. It is filled with exciting stories of survival—the exploits of explorers, military personnel, scientists and astronauts—along with expert analyses of failed expeditions and lessons learned. Jack Stuster identifies the principles of habitability and presents more than 200 specific recommendations to help individuals in confinement.
The book's recommendations and habitability principles are relevant to a variety of space and earthbound conditions, including polar, underwater, and underground, exploration and habitation. In fact, nearly all human relationships that involve small groups of people living and working together in isolated areas can benefit from this study. Stuster's goal is to help others avoid behavioral problems that affect performance, often with tragic consequences.
