Money Mountaineering

Given how the coronavirus pandemic has rocked the economy, readers need a framework to make good financial decisions about their future, as well as support to psychologically handle the changing landscape. That’s what Peter Neuwirth’s six foundational principles of Holistic Financial Wellness can provide. Specifically, this book will help people understand and deal with the complexity of the system, the uncertainty of the future, the hidden agendas and misguided views of many advisors, and the built-in irrationality we have as humans that makes it so hard to survive—let alone thrive financially. As you will soon see, Neuwirth’s advice on how to structure your financial world in order to withstand the inevitable systemic collapses that the global economy was destined to experience could have saved the average reader tens (if not hundreds of thousands) of dollars, had they adopted these suggestions before Covid-19 arrived in this country. More than that, by using the six foundational principles of Holistic Financial Wellness, the attentive reader will now be prepared psychologically to weather the aftermath of this crisis, and be ready to face the next one. “Peter gives readers needed guidance for surviving a complex financial future. This book empowers readers to plan for the predictable, and to be prepared for the unpredictable—without losing sight of the trail.” —Mike Kaplan, CEO, Rael & Letson “Pete’s observations on how to ensure financial wellness over a lifetime are based on his deep knowledge of money and probability, complexity and change, and the quirks of human nature. The book is funny, frank, and realistic about how to navigate financially in an uncertain world.” —Peter Cahall, Chief Executive Officer, CapAcuity

The Last Step  Legends   Lore edition

CLICK HERE to download a sample from The Last Step * A mountaineering classic * Conflict, hardship, endurance, triumph -- it's all here in Ridgeway's extraordinary story In September 1978, Rick Ridgeway, Jim Wickwire, Lou Reichardt and John Roskelley stood atop K2, the first Americans ever to achieve this victory. Under the leadership of Jim Whittaker, they and their teammates had spent 67 days on the mountain, nearly all of them above 18,000 feet, where the stresses of high-altitude living, of monotonous food, of confinement in tiny tents for day after day of frustrating storms had worn them down to the core. The Last Step is Rick Ridgeway's inside story of this extraordinary expedition. It's about the people who, battered by the mountain and their isolation, overcame their individual fears, desire, and disappointments to work together to get somebodyñanybodyñto the top of K2. It's about the glorious success the team achieved, and about the perilous bivouac Jim Wickwire spent just below the summit without food, oxygen or shelter in temperatures of -40F.

Many Everests

As the first IAS officer to climb the world's tallest peak, Ravindra Kumar in this book has presented Mount Everest as a symbol of life's problems beyond the limit of a physical barrier. Introducing the innovative technique of 'Advanced Positive Visualisation', the author explains how the various Everests of life can be conquered with this success key. Kumar has tested the impact of this technique personally and has achieved many feats-starting from his selection in the prestigious IIT entrance examination to his selection in the premier Civil Services Examination and becoming an IAS officer after working at sea for many years and, thereafter, climbing the highest peak of the world in his maiden attempt. It is through his life journey and after analysing its impact, the author has presented to the reader the innate power lying dormant in the human mind. Kumar's claim is based on the fact that our brain catches the image of anything before any other sensory perception like speech, hearing, smell, touch, etc. Although this is a daily phenomenon we don't notice it. The author has not only documented his observation from day-to-day life but has also explained it scientifically by connecting the dots of old as well as modern scientific researches, including Einstein's theory of relativity, findings by yogis, experiments on human brain by modern research centres such as Harvard Medical School, Leningrad Military Laboratory, etc. He has explained this technical subject in a simple lucid language to be understood by all. By demonstrating the miraculous effect of this technique in the lives of ordinary people through the example of his life, the author explains to the readers, and in the process motivates them on how, despite life's vicissitudes, one can achieve one's dreams.

Thin Air

* This classic established Child as one of the great mountaineering writers of our time * Describes Child's apprenticeship to such climbing legends as Doug Scott, Don Whillans, and Alan Rouse * Written with a keen eye for detail, a firm sense of drama and, of course, wit Climbing a Himalayan peak was the stuff of Greg Child's wildest dreams. Then in the late 1970s came a surprise berth on an expedition that was to define his career as a high-altitude mountaineer and transform him personally. A chronicle of his apprenticeship, Thin Air established Child as one of the great mountaineering writers of our time. Thin Air is about the intensity of climbing on the edge day after day. It is about friendships and tragedies and the memories that linger for decades. Filled with humor, irony, and pathos, Thin Air touches us with the beauty of the Baltoro Glacier's landscape and encounters with the local people. It also paints portraits of legendary mountaineers Doug Scott, Don Whillans, Alan Rouse, and others.

Helmand to the Himalayas

I learned a lot about mountaineering in a short space of time and I realised that, on the whole, it is a single sport ... far below anything people earn in the developed world, and they place themselves in mortal danger for that money.

Helmand to the Himalayas

David Wiseman was the first soldier on the scene of one of the most devastating attacks on British soldiers in Afghanistan, witnessing the horrific aftermath of an attack on unsuspecting troops by a rogue element of the Afghan police, which left five men dead and nine wounded, shaking the British forces in Helmand to the core. Only a few weeks later, and haunted by what he had experienced, David was once again fighting shoulder to shoulder with his Afghan allies, but this time would leave the battlefield with a Taliban bullet lodged deep in his chest, inches from his heart. Helmand to the Himalayas is the dramatic story of his journey in combat, his agonising battle with physical injuries and psychological demons and his life affirming recovery as part of a pioneering mountaineering team. An exhilarating memoir of his gritty tour of Afghanistan, it reveals the day-to-day hardships faced by soldiers in battle, the horrors and absurdities of the conflict and the overwhelming challenges and dangers that have faced British soldiers tasked with mentoring their Afghan allies. With staggering honesty, David reveals how frustration and chance eventually led him to find salvation, renewed purpose and a sense of pride on the slopes of Mount Everest with Walking With The Wounded and an unlikely band of wounded veterans.

View From The Summit

I also had £100 in cash in my pocket from my air force pay, quite a lot of money in those days. I returned to New Zealand with two major ambitions – one was to get back into bee-keeping and the second was to do all the climbing I could.

View From The Summit

The first man to set foot on the summit of Everest, the man who led a team of tractors to the South Pole, the man who jetboated up the Ganges from the ocean to the sky has, for the first time, gathered all the remarkable adventures of a long life into one volume. But there is more to Edmund Hillary than this. He is also the man who repaid his debt of fame to the Himalayas by inaugurating a programme of building schools, clinics, airstrips and bridges in Nepal. With his still active support, these have gone from strength to strength in the 50 years since he himself mastered the Hillary Step and led his companion Tenzing Norgay up Everest's final summit ridge. View from the Summit is a thoughtful and honest reappraisal of a life spent pushing human ability to its limits and relishing the challenges thrown down by the elements. It is also the story of a man whom the world has taken to its heart.
