• C'est l'histoire d'un enfant de trois ans qui découvre l'escalade avec son père et décide de ne plus jamais s'arrêter. L'histoire de quatre jeunes grimpeurs partis découvrir les falaises du Kirghizistan. Pris en otage par des rebelles armés, le groupe doit son salut au courage de Tommy Caldwell... Mourir ou tuer, il a fallu choisir. C'est aussi l'histoire d'un grimpeur exceptionnel qui, alors qu'il a perdu un doigt, réussit l'ascension de la grande voie la plus extrême du monde après sept années de tentatives infructueuses : le Dawn Wall, dans le Yosemite.
    Tommy Caldwell et son comparse Kevin Jogerson ont livré un combat titanesque de 19 jours sous le regard des médias du monde entier. Presque un roman, plus qu'un livre d'aventures, Push ! est une ode à la persévérance.

  • 'A real page-turner . . . captivating and deeply moving' Climb magazine In 2015 freeclimber Tommy Caldwell spent 19 days summiting Yosemite's vertical, 3000-foot Dawn Wall - the hardest climb in history. It was the culmination of seven years planning and a lifetime's determination. Here, he recounts how he got there, the falls and set backs (being held hostage, losing his index finger, the break-up of his marriage), the summits conquered and the fears overcome. It is a story about drive, focus and how to achieve the impossible - one toehold at a time. 'Caldwell's story is one of the best. You get more than just a climbing adventure, you get the inside view of how a person can endure crushing setbacks and persist to fulfill a spectacular vision' Jim Collins, author of Good to Great 'Heart-stopping, absorbing' Daily Mail 'Captivating and unfailingly honest' Jon Krakauer 'This isn't just a book about climbing, it's about laser sharp focus in all aspects of life' Scott Jurek, author of Eat & Run 'Absolutely captivating, thrills, enriches' Denver Post
