'An inspirational study in leadership and a powerful testament to the human spirit at its very best.' - Mail on Sunday

'If you're going to get one book this year get Beyond Possible.' - Ant Middleton

'The energy of the book gives it pace and you whip through, rather as Purja nips up verticals... Whether or not you are a lover of the mountains, you will marvel at his tenacity, his fearlessness. No one can fail to be inspired by what he achieved.' - The Times

'Not only does Nims have exceptional physical stamina, he's also a leader with great skills in financial management and logistics.' - Reinhold Messner, the first person to climb all fourteen highest mountains in the world

***

In Beyond Possible Nimdai Purja tells the story of his life before his recent epic achievement of leading the team that scaled K2 in winter. He reveals how leadership, a willingness to learn, integrity and collaboration are essential qualities behind the world's greatest mountaineering feats. Nimsdai is the first man ever to summit all 8000m 'Death Zone' peaks in less than 7 months, and this book reveals the man behind the climbs - how his early life in Nepal and Special Forces training made him the person to go beyond possible...

Beyond Possible Reviews

The man's sheer grit is astonishing. Time and again he forces himself through everescalating pain barriers, driving himself and his loyal team on through willpower alone. As he says, quitting is not in his blood, and his book is both an inspirational study in leadership and a powerful testament to the human spirit at its very best. * Mail on Sunday *
