No Such Thing As Failure : The Extraordinary Life of a Great British Adventurer
There have been a great many books by adventurers, since time immemorial or at least when books first started to be written (for what was Xenophon, if not an adventurer?), by men telling of their incredible exploits around the globe, and people have always wanted to hear about these.
When Hempleman-Adams gives talks the question he is most often asked is what drives him on? Why risk frostbite pulling a sledge to the North Pole? Why experience the Death Zone on Everest? Why fly in the tiny basket of a balloon across the Atlantic? Is it simply the case that he likes to push himself to the limits or is there something more to it? This book will answer all those questions and more, uncovering what drives arguably the world's greatest adventurer.
