"My father's greatest living heroes were John Glenn and Jim Whittaker--a physical giant with a huge heart, a decent soul, and inspirational courage. We can all be grateful that Whittaker has finally put his extraordinary life on paper. Whittaker's story is a riveting saga of high adventure by one of history's greatest climbers." --Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
