Norris, at age 29, was the youngest person in the world to have reached both the summit of Everest (2010) and the North Pole (2011). She has undertaken six Himalayan/Karakoram expeditions, and when not on expedition, is a TV presenter and motivational speaker. She began climbing at age 20 after a chance lecture about mountaineering inspired her to change her life. Her other expeditions have included Manaslu (2009), Ama Dablam (2011), Imja Tse (2012), Lhotse (2012, 1st British woman), and K2 (2016).

This is the story of her journey undertaking the world’s toughest and most dangerous expeditions from Everest to K2. Once an anxious teenager with an eating disorder it was the discovery of a passion for climbing that inspired Bonita to change her life. Drawing on her experiences to capture the agonies - both mental and physical - and joys of her incredible feats Bonita also imparts the lessons learned encouraging you to harness greater self-belief.

She presents an honest exploration of everything she has learned from climbing. Life lessons about ambition, values, risk, happiness, the courage to fail, and what's ultimately important. An indispensable and important book for anyone who has ever doubted their potential or put limits on themselves - whatever challenge you face or ambitions you want to achieve.
