Publisher's Summary

BBC RADIO 4 BOOK OF THE WEEK. Sir Ranulph Fiennes has climbed the Eiger and Mount Everest. He's crossed both Poles on foot. He's been a member of the SAS and fought a bloody guerrilla war in Oman. And yet he confesses that his fear of heights is so great that he'd rather send his wife up a ladder to clean the gutters than do it himself.
In Fear, the world's greatest explorer delves into his own experiences to try to explain what fear is, how it happens and how he's overcome it so successfully. He examines key moments from history where fear played an important part in the outcomes of great events.
With an enthralling combination of storytelling, research and personal accounts of his own struggles to overcome fear, Sir Ranulph Fiennes sheds new light on one of humanity's strongest emotions.

I really wanted to like this book, having seen Ranulph Fiennes on lecture tours some years ago. Unfortunately his narration was stilted and hesitant, like he was seeing the words for the first time. This might actually have been better, narrated by someone else.
Shame because he's an absolute hero but that doesn't translate to this audio book.
