FACING UP. Dedication page. This book is concerned with a person who has undergone a profound experience, at his own seeking, and we are privileged to be allowed an insight into the mind of the person who sought it. As a book it is difficult to parallel

FACING UP. As a book it is difficult to parallel. Albeit the youngest Briton to ever climb Everest, his understanding and honesty, together with his self-awareness, is of a level that many never reach in a long life.

Bear Grylls has always sought the ultimate in adventure. It's surprisingly well written and reminded my a lot of Anthony Bourdain in terms of style and sense of humor. As a teenager at Eton College, Bear found his identity and purpose through both mountaineering and martial arts. Bear Grylls is a very modest guy.

Same book as The Kid Who Climbed Everest 1.00 edition, same text, same dedication, same afterword, same photos, different cover art. So, no need to purchase both. Excellent climbing book, right up there with Into Thin Air (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition) For those with delicate sensibilities, there are some graphic accounts of bodily functions and death on the mountain. Until I started reading this book, I had no idea Mr. Grylls had been severely injured in a parachuting accident prior to his climb of Everest and subsequent wilderness career. I was always impressed with him, now I am more so. He is one of those people who lead extraordinary lives that the rest of us can admire safely from our armchairs. I am reading this aloud to my 12-year old and she loves it! We are both fans of his show and I look forward to purchasing some other books by Mr. Grylls, fiction and non-fiction.
This book was well written and a page Turner! Couldn't put it down! A top 10 of my favorites.
A great man of achievement as well as a great author I highly recommend this book aka(the kid who climbed everest) i also recommend Bears other books he is honest clear, and his adventures are amazing to anyone who loves the wilderness. this books gives a much greater understanding and respect for what it takes to climb the worlds highest peak.
Great story told (I believe) like the way it really is up on top.
It makes you understand the real meaning of taking small steps while achieving big tasks through the experience of climbing Mt Everst. And I am inspired by the way Bear Grylls describes the Mt Everst each time he sees the peak on his journey
This is one of the best, if not the best, books I have ever read on climbing Mt. Everest... right up there with "Into Thin Air". Bear Grylls tells it like it is. You can almlost feel every struggling breath for oxygen and the pain in every muscle as these climbers acclimate themselves to the horrendous conditions above base camp. A must read for Everest enthusiasts.
Excellent account of one young man's journey not only to the top of Everest but throughout his life to the point of his successful summit. Love reading stories about mountaineering and this autobiography does not disappoint.
So many books have been written about climbing Everest its hard now for any author to stand out.

I confess I'm addicted to Bear's TV shows but was curious how this book would stack up. Overall I enjoyed the the book - mainly when Bear was giving insights into his training and his self doubts on the mountain. However sometimes I glazed over as it went over the same ground as all the other Everest books out there.
