Extreme Sports Meet Motivation & Inspiration: Jonathan Wunrow’s ‘Adventure Inward: A Risk Taker’s Book of Quotes’

Written for adventurers and non-adventurers alike, Jonathan Wunrow’s collection of quotes and insights will inspire risk takers and thrill seekers of all sorts, encouraging personal exploration, offering guidance, and engaging in the ultimate adventure: inward.

Through his own experiences as an avid mountain climber, Wunrow and his work use quotes to explore the nature of why extreme sports enthusiasts do what they do, and how their risk taking impacts them and those around them.  The 15 topics explored in Adventure Inward offer perspectives on life, death, purpose, and meaning, not just for risk takers and extreme sports enthusiasts, but for people of all walks of life.

Adventure Inward is a wonderful book that I enjoyed reading. The author does a great job of explaining many existential issues concerning life, death, and one’s purpose… I would definitely recommend  this book to readers who like extreme sports and also to anyone interesting in contemplating life’s mysteries.

– Avery Griffin, Author or The Demon Rolmar

I loved this book and would recommend it to others.  It is surprisingly relevant to anyone’s life… A good quote can inspire, transcend, counter negative thoughts, help us dream,  allow us to escape, validate our thinking and beliefs, and offer basic truths. Indeed, the quotes, proverbs, and sayings Jonathan Wunrow has collected from people of all kinds during his years of mountain climbing experience, can translate to life itself. He makes the point of saying that they are meaningless unless embodied in habit, and also provides tips on how we can do this…Wunrow reflects with telling quotes on nature, on living in the moment, on taking risks, what paths in life to take, of managing fear, of death and family sacrifice.

NEW RELEASE: Self-Help Title from Dr. Linda R. Harper – “Give: A Guide to Discovering the Joy in Everyday Giving”

What is the key to giving that energizes and fulfills us, rather than exhausts and
depletes us?
asks Dr. Linda Harper, Ph.D. in her latest work,
‘Give: A Guide to Discovering the Joy of Everyday Giving.’

     Daily life continually asks us to make choices about how to give—whether it is our attention, time, energy, talents, love, or even money—to others and to ourselves. Often, we juggle our attempts to meet our own needs and the demands of others. So the decisions we make about what, when, and how much to give, strongly impact the quality of our everyday lives. These choices can cause us stress, turmoil, guilt, exhaustion, and depletion—or they can bring us immeasurable joy, peace of mind, and fulfillment.
     Linda R. Harper’s simple five-step guide will help you rediscover the joy in everyday giving using one question: What are my heart’s true desires at this very moment? ‘Give’ is not about giving more or giving less. It is about giving from your deepest self and trusting the natural wisdom of your heart’s desires. As you become the giver you were meant to be, you will deepen the meaning of your life through soulful, ordinary acts of giving—both to yourself and to others.
