Kenneth Kamler, M.D. is vice-president of The Explorers Club, where he has organized a database of information about physiology and endurance. He has been featured on "Nightline," CBS's "48 Hours," CNN, and profiled in "The New York Times" and "USA Today." He also appeared in the IMAX movie, "Everest." A micro-surgeon specializing in the hand, Dr. Kamler was named a "best doctor" by "New York Magazine" in 2002, and is director of the Hand Treatment Center in New Hyde Park, New York. His previous book is "Doctor on Everest." He lives in New York City.


"Ken Kamler is a natural writer, as well as an adventurer and a prober into how much human beings can stand. In "Surviving the Extremes", he brings personal experience and scientific knowledge together beautifully, giving us narratives which are powerful, moving, and very real."
--Oliver Sacks

."..the book's grisly details - from half-severed arms to shriveled, shrunken heads - are fascinating and cautionary. It's like the literary version of television's CSI, set in some of the world's most menacing terrain."
- "Outside Magazine"
