If You’ve Read Into Thin Air You’ve Got to Read This!
This is a book about hopes and dreams, strength and courage – the stuff that is within you, the stuff that can continue to help you in your own life climbs. Alan tells the true story of his triumph at the top of the world and what it took from the depths of his soul. After a lifetime of preparation and two previous expeditions over 10 years had “failed,” he finally makes it on his third try – a true triumph of tenacity. But what he discovers along the way will surprise you. It’s another side of success, a peak perspective on high performance in the extreme. No one dies, but a few truly live.
Far More than Just Another Everest Adventure
All of Alan’s expeditions were self-guided, self-organized and corporately sponsored $500,000 efforts that took 3 to 7 years to finance, organize and execute. They required 4 to 9 tons of equipment and supplies and involved 20 expedition members. This is a deeply personal account of the trials and triumphs along the way, the prices paid and the new perspectives gained. Dozens of colour photographs and inspirational quotations. Riveting scenes. Intense struggles. What emerges are powerful lessons about life – realizations from which everyone can benefit, no matter what mountain you happen to be climbing in life.
