Detailed Product Description
2008, 1st UK edition. 316 pp, color photos. Overcoming vertigo - and countless injuries which left him officially 60 per cent disabled - the 'Real Spiderman' has scaled over 70 skyscrapers worldwide: from the Petronas Towers in Malaysia to Taipei 101, from Chicago's Sears Tower to Canary Wharf in London.
 
Reward and punishment have been received in equal measure - the flamboyant Frenchman has gained international fame and raised thousands of pounds for charity, but has also been arrested, beaten and prosecuted. Many people ask whether it is madness to undertake such perilous ascents without using safety equipment. But in Alain Robert's view, it is madness not to follow your dreams! This is the inspiring story of a man who has conquered fear and exceeded his own limits: the world's greatest urban climber.
 
Alain Robert, a.k.a. The Human Spider has solo climbed (no ropes harnesses etc) the world’s tallest and most iconic buildings among them the Jin Mao tower in Shabghai, the Debis Tower in Berlin, the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur and the Sears Tower in Chicago. The author began climbing in his early teens and has climbed up to F8a on rock but now concentrates almost entirely on climbing tall structures; he was also the subject of a popular documentary called No Limits shown on British television earlier this year. New hardcover with DJ.
