Detailed Product Description
US, 2019, 1st ed. 252 pp. Foreword by Jamling Tensing Norgay.  New paperback. 

Araceli Seggara was part of the events that happened on Mount Everest in May 1996. She and Jamling Tenzing were the "stars" of the Everest Imax movie that David Breashears was filming, and was also part of the rescue effort to bring down the survivors of the storm on May 10-11, when eight climbers caught in a blizzard died on Mount Everest while attempting to descend from the summit. Over the entire 1996 climbing season, 12 people died trying to reach the summit, making it the deadliest season on Mount Everest at the time.  

Not That High and Not That Difficult is a crossover, a work that all kinds of readers will love, and for different reasons. It is the story, told in the first person, of the first Spanish speaking woman to climb Everest. It is a practical book of how the same tenacity and resolve can help readers to achieve any goal they set for themselves. It is an eyewitness account of some many important events. 

In 1996 four expeditions to Everest suffered fatalities which caused a huge international stir and gave rise to a major controversial bestseller Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer. Araceli was part of the rescue team and in Not That High and Not That Difficult she gives as her fascinating and dramatic first-person account. Inspirational. Controversial. Dramatic. 

Araceli’s Segarra debut as a writer will logically reach new heights. When she decided to take part in a film about mountaineering, the result was Everest, the biggest IMAX film box-office success of all time. And when she decided that her experience could help a lot of companies achieve excellence, her motivational speeches where (and still are) requested by the biggest corporations. Change, management, leadership, mindset, teamwork, dealing with uncertainty, fear, risk and effort, overcoming obstacles, attitude, breaking paradigms, visualization, adversity, resilience, determination, decisions making, work-life balance, strategy and many other concepts will take you to a great ride.

Araceli Seggara is the first Spanish woman to scale the heights of Everest; an international model; a motivational speaker for international companies. For the first time ever Araceli Segarra lets as in on all the secrets of her exceptional life … and how can make your own life exceptional. “This book will take you along a journey that few have taken and many do not know about,” says Jamling Tensing Norgay who summited Everest with Araceli, in the introduction.
