About this deal

Those who like self-help books can get something out of these books and for those just interested in Ant's own experiences, there is lots to enjoy in this book too. I also learned alot about climbing Everest and how the modern climber faces a big challenge from overcrowding and under qualified climbers clogging the route, increasing the natural dangers many-fold.

If the default mindset is 'You're not good enough,' the positive mindset is 'I'm better than I was yesterday.He talks frankly about starting to crave the fear that he has always been able to thrive on, even playing a form of chicken with the city traffic just to give him a jolt of it. Applicability of cancellation rights: Legal rights of cancellation under the Distance Selling Regulations available for UK or EU consumers do not apply to certain products and services. This book is packed with advice from his personal experiences, down to earth, and incredibly exciting because the book simultaneously follows the story of his summit on Mount Everest. There was a scene where his attitude to an ice fall that would have killed them, if they had paused 10 minutes before, was well it didn't, move on! There were other scenes where I thought he was putting others at risk because he wanted to be the alpha male in the group.

Overall, there were too many contradictions from “you can do this if you put your mind to it” to “I’m better at everything than everyone so just fuck off out of my way and leave me be”. I also liked how he gave real life examples of people he meets and when he gives them advise he doesn’t claim that those people are now the happiest people in the world. But don't let anyone try to convince you that you're a failure until you're actually lying on that deathbed'. It is not one of those books full of typical inspirational speeches that dosent really give you proper advice on how to achieve what you set out to do in life.We mainly use Royal Mail Tracked 48 Service for goods which weight less then 2kg, all other goods will be delivered by a Courier. Everyone will naturally have their own opinion on the star rating of this book, as it’s going to relate to people in different ways.

He also had a lot to say about the 'victim mindset' and how prevalent this is in modern popular culture.

And at the top of Everest, in desperate, life-threatening conditions, he was forced to face up to his greatest fear, of leaving his children and wife without a father and husband. I have a 9yr old with a very good imagination which I feel is feeding into fears (he's a very happy child though) and wanted to see if I could adapt my behaviour to set him an example. It was easy to find examples of this in my own life, like going through the door marked dentist after years of fear about it and finally realising that I could cope with it, which was personally satisfying. Knyga tarsi specialiųjų pajėgų kario prisiminimai, tarsi alpinisto dienoraštis apie kopimą į Everestą, tarsi gyvenimo būdo vadybininko pamokymai kaip dera, verta, naudinga elgtis, net mąstyti. In the end he agrees to it as climbing Everest is expensive and having someone else foot the bill made a lot more sense than paying for it himself.
