Everest, the major motion picture from Universal Pictures, is set for wide release on September 18, 2015. Read The Climb, Anatoli Boukreev (portrayed by Ingvar Sigurðsson in the film) and G. Weston DeWalt’s compelling account of those fateful events on Everest. In May 1996 three expeditions attempted to climb Mount Everest on the Southeast Ridge route pioneered by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay in 1953. Crowded conditions slowed their progress. Late in the day twenty-three men and women-including expedition leaders Scott Fischer and Rob Hall-were caught in a ferocious blizzard. Disoriented and out of oxygen, climbers struggled to find their way down the mountain as darkness approached. Alone and climbing blind, Anatoli Boukreev brought climbers back from the edge of certain death. This new edition includes a transcript of the Mountain Madness expedition debriefing recorded five days after the tragedy, as well as G. Weston DeWalt's response to Into Thin Air author Jon Krakauer.

On 26th July 2015, Chris Froome entered the record books. He won cycling's ultimate race - the Tour de France - for the second time. Taking a double Yellow Jersey was a staggering achievement. This memoir shows just how remarkable it was, given the uphill struggle Froome faced. Growing up in Kenya, biking down mile after mile of dusty road, and staying in a humble tin hut, he developed a fierce passion and determination to win. The road to Europe was long, gruelling and filled with setbacks - but it prepared him for teamwork as a domestique and then the leap to leader of Team Sky and a shot at winning the Tour de France. In The Climb, written with the renowned investigative reporter David Walsh, he vividly recounts the struggles, the rivalries, the battles, the comebacks. Finally he traces his path to triumph and his mission to help clean up cycling. Inspiring and exhilarating, it will leave you ready to face your own challenges in life, whatever they may be.

Once there was nothing and out of this evolved the universe. In the miasma of creation were five comets each with a golden core. As the Earth evolved and cooled down human beings began to walk the Earth. Then some four thousand years ago there was a poor tribe in Peru named the Macapas. This was when the Creator decreed the first of these five comets should be despatched to bring golden riches to the tribe. There were two provisos. Six golden haired maidens must be laid out on slabs as sacrifices to the gold star atop the Cumaria Plateau to drop its wealth upon them bringing prosperity to the tribe. They were also required to build a temple in which must be placed six golden columns as a tribute to the maidens who had sacrificed themselves for the benefit of all their fellow tribesmen and women. A geography professor at the University of Birmingham in England hears about this unique celestial event while giving a seminar in Lima Peru. It intrigues him greatly so he decides to form a small expedition to find evidence of the sacrifices made and of course locate the mystery temple. A remarkable story unfolds of this search which has far reaching consequences.
