"[Ranulph's] book is not all about hairy-chested adventure: he also tells deeply movingly of his love for his first wife, Ginny, his childhood sweetheart . . . His courage, determination, stamina—and madness—are truly awesome." —Daily Express
"It's exhausting just reading about his exploits, so it is a perfect bedtime book. It's delightful to plump up one's duck-down pillows while vicariously enduring Fiennes's successive plunges into the deadly waters of the Arctic, and his festering crotch-rot." —New Statesman
