"Ranking alongside Ranulph Fiennes and Chris Bonnington in the pantheon of British explorers, David Hempleman-Adams is the first person in history to achieve what is termed the Adventurers' Grand Slam, by reaching the Geographic and Magnetic North and South Poles as well as climbing the highest peaks on all seven continents. But this feat is merely tip of the iceberg. Having reaching the summit of Everest on the more difficult north side and flown across the Atlantic in a an open wicker basket hot-air balloon, Hempleman-Adams is without question one of the hardest, toughest, most fearless men to push the limits of human survival. The question Hempleman-Adams is most often asked is, simply: 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 precarious 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? No Such Thing as Failure answers these questions and more, uncovering what drives arguably the world's greatest adventurer,"--Amazon.com.
