BeschreibungIn a career spanning more than 30 years, Sir Ranulph Fiennes has circumnavigated the globe, broken numerous records, and experienced triumph and disaster. The high points are many, but there are low points too--the failed expedition to Antarctica in 1996, when painful kidney stones forced him to turn back; and the solo and unsupported attempt to reach the North Pole in 2000, which ended in horrendous frostbite and near death. In "Beyond the Limits," Fiennes looks back over a lifetime of extraordinary adventures and talks about the lessons he has taken away from each one, from the importance of preparation and leadership to the value of persistence.
PortraitSir Ranulph Fiennes, Bt, OBE, is the world's most celebrated contemporary adventurer and explorer. A former member of the SAS, he has been a leader of major expeditions to both poles and elsewhere in the world for over thirty years.
