Praise for TO THE LIMITS

"Jim Clash not only has the guts to drive an Indy race car at 200 m.p.h., but the skills as a writer to let us know what it feels like."
–Mario Andretti, Indy 500 winner and Formula One World Driving Champion

"If Jim Clash wrote fiction, he would be the modern-day equivalent of Ernest Hemingway. In To the Limits, he combines a powerful, understated style with the soul of a risk-taker to show, not tell, us what it’s like to climb the Matterhorn, drive at 200 m.p.h., reach the North Pole. The people he profiles–Hillary, Bannister, Teller, Aldrin–read like a who’s-who of twentieth-century adventurers. A must-read for anyone who loves adventure, history–and the business behind it."
–Kitty Pilgrim, CNN correspondent

"What permeates this book is a spirit to push the envelope, both by the author and the adventurers and businessmen he profiles. We need more of that in the twenty-first century, especially as we pioneer space tourism."
–Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 astronaut and founder of ShareSpace

"This book not only chronicles some of the great adventures and adventurers of modern time, but does it in a way that rings true. There’s no gushy fluff here. Clash gets it–he understands what real adventure is, and what it is not."
–Tommy Moe, 1994 Olympic Downhill Champion and ski ambassador to Jackson Hole

"Great challenges often inspire people to exceed their own perceived limits and, by doing so, expand their own horizons and perhaps inspire others by example. Jim Clash has given us a wonderful collection of such challenges, revealing the miracle of the human spirit."
–Lawrence Huntington, mountaineer and former chairman, Fiduciary Trust International
