About this deal

Not to take away from his first book, but for me, this was so much more than I expected and really resonated with me. Ant Middleton is no stranger to fear: as a point man in the Special Forces, he confronted fear on a daily basis, never knowing what lay behind the next corner, or the next closed door.

He might not burst it first time every time, having to step back outside it for a moment to gather himself and re-enter. If you open the door, you could find something scary or difficult but if you push through, you will grow from the new experience and improve. I have a 9yr old with a very good imagination which I feel is feeding into fears (he's a very happy child though) and wanted to see if I could adapt my behaviour to set him an example. For me personally it was thoroughly enjoyable, I actually haven’t read his first book, or know much about him until I read this, which 3/4 in, led me to binge on some of his ‘SASwhodareswins’ tv series.Every decision you make ends up being based not on reading the situation and following correct procedure but on how good you're going to look. His first book, First Man In, was a Number 1 bestseller, staying in the hardback charts for 33 weeks, and selling over 500,000 copies across all formats. It covers the whole of Ant's expedition to Everest, his alpha male dominance games with his cameraman, trying to learn more about his new sherpa friends, hating the tourist circus of the hike to Everest and the show off attitudes of some of the climbers whose mouths were a lot stronger than their climbing skills.

I really like this book for ant middletons ways of getting his own personal struggles over to the reader and to help or give advice to others. In the end he agrees to it as climbing Everest is expensive and having someone else foot the bill made a lot more sense than paying for it himself. Als Bergsteigerin lebe ich gefährlich und das Buch ist also sehr interessant aber eigentlich ist es auch zu empfehlen für den Alltag. Ant decides to go on a low key expedition with sherpa guides and no fanfares but as soon as the TV people hear of his plans, they want to send a camera crew with him, something that Ant isn't greatly keen on, fearing he will loss control of the whole thing.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. His way is his own for telling or explaining and it may not be for everyone but its defiantly worth a read. I've already seen the TV show of the Everest trip so I knew in advance what happened but I still enjoyed reading more detail about it. He talks about his fear during tours in war arenas, and training himself not to fear it while he was preparing at home, travelling to war, settling at the base and heading out the mission. Ant Middleton is no stranger to as a point man in the Special Forces, he confronted fear on a daily basis, never knowing what lay behind the next corner, or the next closed door.

Being mindful of enemies trying to belittle, but also of the people who are trying to set you up to fail. Also how he gives us normal life examples, as probably most of us won’t climb Everest any time soon.The sale of customised goods or perishable goods, sealed audio or video recordings, or software, which has been opened. This is not just a self help book on overcoming fear, but also part memoir using examples from Ant's life both in and outside the military with the main thread being him attempt to climb Everest.
