'Bear Grylls, the youngest person to ascend Everest, did so after many months recovering from a broken back. He writes convincingly of fear and doubt. This is an honest and compelling story' - Ranulph Fiennes. 'As exquisitely stark and inspiring as the bare crags of Everest itself. Honesty shines from the pages, Bear's indomitable spirit encouraging you on through threat of frostbite and avalanche until you are at the summit, breathlessly sharing in his triumph' - Benedict Allen. '"Facing Up" is the thrilling true story of a remarkable young climber, who made it to the top of the world. I warmly commend it to you' - George Carey, Archbishop of Canterbury
