I said that he was probably addicted to thrill seeking which it seems that he was but Naked and Marooned is than just a survival story After the fact Stafford digs around in his own head a little bit and manages to come to terms with why he behaves the way he do

I enjoyed the generalstoryline of this book but agree with some other readers that Ed Stafford s use of language though real gets a repetitive at times in this book I learned uite a bit from this book about mental attitude while living in a solitary situation which is helpful as I travel regularly on my own in remote wilderness I recognize some of his thought patterns as similar to my own Using the aboriginal concept of the stone circle to cope with stress is brilliant and something I will use in my future adventures The epilogue in my mind is the highlight of the book In it he wraps up the mental and social aspects of his time alone on the island I won t offer a spoiler but the last paragraph is uite reflective of my own sense when I spend time alone in the wilderness Nice to know other people get that same sense

review Naked and Marooned One Man One Island Ed Stafford é 9 Read & Download Free download × E-book, or Kindle E-pub é Ed Stafford What do you do after you walk the  Ed Stafford adventurer extraordinaire and Guinness World Record holder for walking the length of the River likes a challenge Casting about for an adventure that would top the extraordinary fe. This is the self told story of a man Ed Stafford who went to a small island near Fiji so he could spend two months without human contact and the surroundings of modern lifeOne has to resist the urge to scream WHY not counting his contract and no doubt uite a bit of money from the Discovery Channel He says it himself I wondered why anyone would volunteer to put themselves through such a challenge What was wrong with me This from a man who walked the entire length of the for two years and apparently didn t learn his lessonAt some point in history especially during the great explorations of the late 1400s and 1500s this must have happened a few times a solo castaway without even clothes on his back On the other hand that person was probably better suited for such a catastrophe than a modern human used to many many amenities He does after all have video cameras and he finds debris from the ocean particularly water bottles that he uses But if you can do that get past that huge uestion as to the whyness of it all this book actually becomes enjoyable The author certainly derives great pleasure from his metaphors like An emotional attack helicopter rose from my belly rotors lacerating my chest until it smashed violently into my ill prepared brain Another one that made me laugh and shake my head simultaneously was Then fortune decided to twist my nipple and spit in my face Okay one I could feel brain cells being elbowed awake by their neighbors His first preoccupation as one would expect in such situations is fresh drinking water If I could ask him one uestion it would be why he didn t think to wonder where the native animals particularly the goats found theirs It doesn t take him long to feel the stress of being alone I wonder if his isolation psychology is applicable to long space travel It s a fine line whether he s talking to himself or the cameras but I do have to admit there s plenty to laugh at here which is okay because he laughs at himself often Like his reaction when he finally got his first fire started Fire was after all one of the greatest discoveries in the evolution of humankind All I had to do now was invent everything from the wheel through the moon landings and the internet On the other hand he s uite happy with just this not so much to keep warm but so he could have a nice cup of tea mentioning how something normal even if it wasn t essential made for a positive shift in his mental state Said mental balance fluctuates a lot though often he blames it on lack of nutrients Still he noticed that cooked meals taste a lot better than raw yet he also says Hunger is the sweetest of sauces Maybe the most important thing for him even so than the fire was how he dealt with missing his loved ones He and his fianc e had agreed to think of each other at exactly the same time every day keeping time zones in mind which to me was the most human moment of the whole bookOne thing I found amusing was the chapter breaks at the start of each new section it mentions how many days into this grand experiment he s in but it s done like tickings on a wall with four lines and a slash representing each five Not sure why this made me laugh so hard but it does I m just glad I can still count in that styleAnother moment of self realization occurs when he finally realizes there s no point in being angry at the rain There is nothing serene about being frustrated by the weather your age or the passing of time It is utterly pointless and a bloody waste of energy So you relax about the things outside your control uite simply because they are outside your control No brainer This for me was the most telling moment and a perfect example as to why I would never do something like this By the fire I ate termites off a rotten log as they tried to escape the fire This wasn t because I needed the calories they were insignificant it was out of boredom a distraction When you find yourself eating termites for entertainment that s boredom Towards the end he becomes sick and it s painful enough that he gets on the emergency sat phone to a doctor who says that if he d been in a city he d take him to a hospital right away Can t help but wonder if had this happened earlier in the two months he would have given up but being so close to surviving the whole thing he decided to keep going albeit after receiving medicine along with his routine drop of batteries and memory cards As though to answer my uestion from above there s a postscript about meeting up with a psychiatrist after he gets back to England who tells him he s suffering through a form of PTSD There is no doubt that what you are experiencing is the effects of psychological torture The uniue thing about your case is that you opted to be put in this situation Which again leads me to the all important uestion of why I don t feel this was satisfactorily explained though I doubt that answer was the point of the endeavor In fact I don t think he knows even after all thatBut I suppose he was heartened when the psychiatrist told him that feeling as he did made him 100% normal I m not sure I would go that far355 o

I was enjoying the book until the bit with the goat If he didn t have the resources to dispatch the animal humanely then he shouldn t have attempted it Saying it was him or the goat and that he had to do it to survive is utter rubbish He was on the island at his own choosing and could leave at any time Did he really have to put an animal through a prolonged and painful death ultimately to make an entertainment programme I don t think so I could say other stuff about his fragile ego and his need to perform for the camera but he does a lot of self examining and gets therapy I hope he is in a better place now This is not really a survival book but a book about making a tv show
