After revealing his incredible achievements in the bestselling Cold, Sir Ranulph Fiennes reveals what it's like to live - and survive - in the hottest conditions on the planet in his latest book, Heat.

Britain's most famous adventurer, Fiennes took on the endurance test of living in extreme heat without water or shelter shortly after becoming the oldest Briton to have finished the Marathon des Sables. Showing his integrity and resolve, the book tells how he managed to live through temperatures that regularly exceeded 40 degrees.

A red-hot read about the limits of human endurance. Well-known for his experiences at the poles and climbing Everest, he has also endured some of the hottest conditions on the planet, where temperatures regularly exceed 40 degrees and without water and shelter death is inevitable.

External Reviews

"Another romp with Fiennes across the deserts of Arabia and Africa. Although the focus is on the author's own experience he does manage to weave in much of the local history and especially that of earlier explorers of the regions."

"Fiennes is never boring, and never boastful - he's done amazing things, some almost incredible, but allows them to speak for themselves. He's not afraid to admit that he didn't always get it right, and doesn't seek to excuse his mistakes, or blame others. What I found particularly good is that he brings in a lot of often quite recondite information and anecdotes that aren't strictly relevant to his theme, but are not the less well worth hearing about. His analyses of the development of religion, politics and social welfare in the Middle East are not lengthy, but strike me as the best summary reviews of hideously complex areas of life there that I've ever seen." - Goodreads Reviews.
