Ok, I know I am biased because I'm a fan of Bear Grylls but this was an excellent book! This was Bear's first book and, even though he is not an author, I felt he did a fantastic job at writing. Bear has always had a dream of climbing Mt. Everest but that dream was shattered in 1996 when Bear suffered a broken back while parachuting. Even though he went through 18 months of agonizing rehabilitation, Bear never lost his that dream. In 1998 he accomplished his the impossible by becoming the youngest Britain to climb Everest. In this book, Bear describes how he reached that dream. From training to reaching the summit, Bear gives a description of an exciting and heartbreaking journey that will sure to inspire.
