About this book

Seeing a total solar eclipse is often described as a once-in-a-lifetime experience. However, for many who have experienced totality, once-in-a-lifetime is simply not enough. They want more, and are willing to go to great lengths often at great expense to repeat the experience. What is it like to experience totality? What is it about the experience that motivates these eclipse chasers? Is there an eclipse chaser personality? Can eclipse chasing actually be described as an addiction? Total Addiction: The Life of an Eclipse Chaser describes the people who dedicate their lives to chasing their dream.

Biography

Kate Russo is a seasoned eclipse chaser, having experienced nine eclipses in some of the most fascinating and far-flung locations on Earth. She has been hooked ever since her first total eclipse in 1999. Professionally, Kate has worked as a Clinical Psychologist in the UK for the last 14 years. She supports a doctoral-level training programme for clinical psychologists, as well as running a private consultancy practice. In her clinical work and research, she specialises in helping children and adults find meaning in their lives despite living with chronic and life-limiting medical conditions. Kate is a native Australian, but when not standing in the shadow of the Moon, she can generally be found in her adopted home of Belfast, Northern Ireland.
