My account of life in the death zone, and how my time in the Gurkhas and Special Boat Service prepared me for a record-breaking conquest of all 14 of the world's 8,000m peaks in under 7 months.

About the Author

Nirmal ('Nims') Purja MBE was born in Nepal. He served as a Gurkha and in the elite Special Boat Service (SBS) before leaving to concentrate on his passion for mountaineering and exploration.
Industry Reviews
The man's sheer grit is astonishing. Time and again he forces himself through everescalating pain barriers, driving himself and his loyal team on through willpower alone. As he says, quitting is not in his blood, and his book is both an inspirational study in leadership and a powerful testament to the human spirit at its very best. - Mail on Sunday
