Fear Our Ultimate Challenge Synopsis

Sir Ranulph Fiennes has climbed the Eiger and Mount Everest. He's crossed both Poles on foot. He's been a member of the SAS and fought a bloody guerrilla war in Oman. And yet he confesses that his fear of heights is so great that he'd rather send his wife up a ladder to clean the gutters than do it himself. In this fascinating book he explores the concept of fear, and shows us through his own experiences how we can push our boundaries in everyday life.
