At 7.22am on May 26th 1998, Bear entered The Guinness Book of Records as the youngest, and one of only around thirty, British climbers to have successfully climbed Everest and returned alive. He was only 23 years old. The actual ascent took Bear over ninety days of extreme weather, limited sleep and running out of oxygen deep inside the 'death zone' (above 26,000 feet).

The ice cracked and the ground disappeared beneath him, he was knocked unconscious and came to swinging on the end of a rope. His team-mate and that rope saved his life.

This autobiography reads more like a motivational book when you learn all his adversity and what he has accomplished. His drive is inspiring and he sees the world in such an optimistic and adventurous way. This book only covers a few of his adventures as he has lived a life that could fill multiple books. Really enjoyed this.
