A monthly Online Book Club with LIVE Q&A sessions with Pioneering Authors.

Why

When I read a non fiction book, I always want to discuss the book with friends and ask the author a bunch of questions – especially on areas that the book does not answer!

This club is a chance for you to do that, along with sharing the experience with like-minded people.

How does it work?

At the start of every month I will share the title of an adventure book that centers on the themes of resilience, transformation and personal performance – similar stories & guests to those showcased on the Sam Gash Podcast. There are some EPIC female warriors showcased in the lineup.

At the end of the month you are invited to an Online Trailblazers Book Club Meet Up, followed by a LIVE Q&A with the author themselves!!

This is your chance to deep dive with some pioneering humans sharing adventurous tales and innovative ideas.

NICK BUTTER

Running the World

The inspiring story of one man’s world record breaking adventure to run a marathon in every country in the world.

On January 6th 2018, Nick Butter tied his laces and stepped out onto an icy pavement in Toronto, where he began to take the first steps of an epic journey that would see him run 196 marathons in every one of the world’s 196 countries. Spending almost two years on the road and relying on the kindness of strangers to keep him moving, Nick’s odyssey allowed him to travel slowly, on foot, immersing himself in the diverse cultures and customs of his host nations.

Running through capital cities and deserts, around islands, up and down beaches and through lush vegetation, Nick was often joined by local supporters and fellow runners, curious children and bemused passers-by. His conversations with those he meets give his journey meaning, as do the countless hours he spends alone, putting one foot in front of the other, clocking miles and absorbing a sense of place, a state of peace, and the feeling of belonging.

In the process of setting eight world records and running over five thousand miles, Nick came to see the world in all it’s glorious diversity and its shared humanity. As he recounts his adventures, he shares his unique perspective on our planet.

MEGAN HINE

Mind of a Survivor

Megan Hine takes you along for a series of life-and-death adventures and shows you what happens to people when they are pushed to their limits.

Being chased through the jungle by armed opium farm guards, abseiling past bears and lighting fires with tampons, Megan has seen and done it all. Mind Of A Survivor is packed with adventures from the frozen tundra, sweltering deserts, humid jungles, perilous mountains and fast-flowing rivers and looks at the reasons why expeditions run into trouble. Bad weather, the lack of food or the presence of predators obviously play a huge part, but the greatest dangers come from within. Whether it’s panic, ego, the cult of the leader, an unwillingness to take instruction (especially from a woman), tensions within the group or paralyzing fear, the human brain is simultaneously the greatest asset and biggest liability we have.

Using life-and-death examples from her own career, Megan shows you how others have developed the attitudes and attributes to thrive in the most dangerous situations, and how those same attitudes and attributes help them confront problems and obstacles at work and at home. She’ll also share with you the times when, on solo expeditions, she doubted her own mental toughness.

Megan examines the human ability and instinct for survival sharing the life tools that she uses in order to survive and showing how they can as easily be applied to more domestic everyday life – from careers to relationships, she shares insight and advice from her own experiences that can help people survive in any situation and cope with whatever life throws at them.
