Bestselling author Ranulph Fiennes writes about the people who have formed him through their inspirational example.
The world's greatest explorer, Ranulph Fiennes writes about the people who have inspired him - from explorers to policemen, soldiers to freedom fighters.
Wherever in the world Ranulph gives one of his lectures or motivational speeches, someone always asks: 'Who inspired you to do all the crazy things you've done?'
For the first time he explores this idea by revealing his own personal heroes and what lessons their actions may have taught him in his own often hazardous profession.
This book describes the extraordinary and often horrific events that led to twelve ordinary individuals becoming Ran's great heroes. From polar survivor to knifed-and-beaten policeman, from Gestapo-tortured female to MI5 double agent and from Inquisition survivor to boiled-alive fire-fighter, these twelve wonderful people will make you proud to be part of the human race.
