With Bare Hands
by Alain Robert

"Climbing skyscrapers with bare hands seemed impossible to me, but I have realized that the impossible remains until you make it possible." 

Overcoming vertigo -- and countless injuries which left him officially 60% disabled -- the 'Real Spiderman' has scaled over 70 skyscrapers worldwide: from the Petronas Towers in Malaysia to Taipei 101, from Chicago's Sears Tower to Canary Wharf in London. Reward and punishment have been received in equal measure -- the flamboyant Frenchman has gained international fame and raised thousands of pounds for charity, but has also been arrested, beaten and prosecuted. 

Many people ask whether it is madness to undertake such perilous ascents without safety equipment. But in Alain's view, it is madness not to follow your dreams! This is the inspiring story of a man who has conquered fear and exceeded his own limits: the world's greatest urban climber.

Alain Robert's audacious ascents have been covered by the BBC, CNN, Fox News, The Guardian, The New York Times and media worldwide. Now you can read Alain's incredible story in his own words.
