Sir Ranulph Fiennes has been hailed by the GUINNESS BOOK OF RECORDS as the world’s greatest living explorer. Following his most recent unsupported attempt to reach the North Pole which nearly cost him his life, he looks back on three decades of adventures in all corners of the globe and what he has learned from them.

Reflecting on such diverse themes as the importance of choosing the right team, monitoring the opposition and dealing with the media, Sir Ranulph presents a breathtaking collection of photographs from his personal archive and discusses the – sometimes painful – lessons he has taken away from each expedition. From the famous and successful Transglobe voyage in the early 1980s to his life-threatening attempt on the North Pole in 2000, this is a riveting and enlightening insight into the life of an extraordinary man.

My admiration for Ran is unbounded and thank God he exists. The world would be a far duller place without him
