"Bear Grylls, the youngest [Briton] to ascend Everest, did so agter many months recovering from a broken back. He writes convincingly of feat and doublt. This is an honest and compelling story."
-Sir Ranulph Finnes, author of Mind over Matter: The Epic Crossing of the Antarctic Continent.
"Bear Grylls is a young man with skills beyond his years, both in climbing and story telling. This book, like the feat of summiting Everest itself, is a great triumph of the human spirit."
Mike Tidwell, author of In the Mountains of Heaven: Tales of Adventure on Six Continents
