    Short Description * A lavishly illustrated survey of Sir Ranulph's adventurous life and times, exploring the lessons learned from both successes and failures
    Author Biography Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Bt, OBE, is the world's most celebrated contemporary adventurer and explorer. A former member of the SAS, he has been a leader of major expeditions to both poles and elsewhere in the world for over thirty years.
    Review In typical modest style Sir Ranulph looks back on a lifetime of exploration and shows how his methods can be used to attain success in everyday life. Here was a man who refused to be put off when friends said, 'You've a fat chance' after hearing of his determination to reach the North Pole from Canada - the most difficult route. Their words rang particularly hollow when Ran returned after losing more than a third of his bodyweight and suffering from severe frostbite. This indomitable courage and will to achieve his goals shines out through each of Ran's adventures which he relates here, and he shows that the greatest explorers also have to be good man managers - because back-up teams are notoriously fickle and it is a hard job to keep them onside. Great adventure writing from one of the world's greatest adventurers. (Kirkus UK)
