Detailed Product Description
Privately published, 2022, 1st edition. 324 pages (stated, looks more like 200-250.) New paperback. 

Memoirs of a British climber and adventurer. It is sometimes said that the struggles of climbing are a metaphor of the struggles of life that affect almost everybody. This is one climber who brings the inner and outer struggles of climbing into one existential whole. 

''One in four of us will suffer from a mental illness throughout our lives. That is a huge swath of the population of the world. My name is Pete and one of the most important things that you need to know about me is that I have mental health issues. This has been both a curse and a blessing. My life goal was to climb Mount Everest. 

''Extract from Chapter 15: ''Statistically less than one percent of people of the population of England have been diagnosed with a personality disorder; perhaps there are a great many more undiagnosed. A Borderline Personality disorder is also known as emotional unstable personality disorder. This means that those people that have it are affected in many ways and often have high levels of personal distress during their lives. It means they have difficulty managing feelings and thoughts, have difficulties in relationships and often feeling bad about themselves which may result in self harming behaviours.''

''This is my story, on my way to the summit there have been lots of side winding tracks which have taken me around Europe, Africa, cycling across Tibet on a pushbike, riding across China’s Taklamakan desert on a 125cc motorbike and trekking to Everest Base Camp.'' 

''This story describes the ups and downs of living with a mental health problem but at the same time achieving things that most people only imagine. Sadly mental health is stigmatized and discriminated against. This book is my attempt at getting you to understand the realities of those who suffer. It took 14 years in the making and I hope the message is not lost on you.''
