    I enjoyed a few parts of this book and I think that the author adequately addressed his many adventures that he went on throughout his life (so far). However, after reading it, I feel like I don't know anymore about the author than when I started. While I liked his stories of the adventures, I don't know what inspired him to climb the summits or to the trek to the poles or to race in balloons. Things that may have been interesting to learn of.Of course, that sort of reflection may be out of char [...]

    No Such Thing as Failure is the autobiography of David Hempleman-Adams, one of the greatest adventurers of possibly all time. His achievements include being the first to complete the Adventurer's Grand Slam by scaling the tallest mountains in all seven continents, along with with reaching the Magnetic and Geographic North and South Poles. NSTAF covers his adventures in three main segments: Rock, which features his mountain climbing feats; Ice, which covers his treks to reach the Magnetic and Geo [...]

    i think David adams book no such thing as failure earns a 4 star rating off of his detail during everest,north pole and his personal life. Adams does a great job of telling us every little thing about everest and the other 6 mountains some juicy and other giving me chillse main reason i didn't give this book a full 5 is because i feel like adams didn't give me to really care about his family and his friends.I think the book could've gotten 4 and a half stars if it had focused more on the mountai [...]

    What a truly remarkable man who really lives up to his motto 'no such thing as failure' . I like how he has split his adventures into 3 sections rather than writing chronologically. This allows the reader to really understand the challenges that he faced as well as emcompassing his sheet determination for each challenge. The question is 'what is next?' I truly recommend that this book is a 'must' read for anybody interested in adventure and record setting.

    I was bored. I didn't finish it. The author seemed so 'full of himself' that I just decided there are too many books waiting to spend time reading any more of this. I got maybe 100 pages into it. There was nothing to make me want to continue picking up this book. It was just another mountaineering book with nothing that grabbed you & made you want to NOT put it down.
