How extreme isolation warps the mind
The BBC has review (How extreme isolation warps the mind) of the book The Power of Others by Michael Bond (Oneworld Publications). It discusses how disorienting isolation can be. But it also mentions the big difference between people. Some become crazy from a week of isolation in prison. Others choose isolation in solo sailing, mountaineering or meditation and seem to thrive on it.
