In 2011, Vaughan De la Harpe and Sean Disney completed the Grand Slam, which is summiting the worlds seven highest peaks as well as journeying to the North and South Poles. The book chronicles their achievements in an amusing and modest manner, while still sharing the drama of the various expeditions. Poles Apart is highly informative about some of the real nitty-gritty encounters and behind-the-scenes information about what exactly it takes to summit some of the worlds highest mountains, delving into the vast and varied challenges of mountaineering and very personal experiences of how the two authors overcame them, finding an inner strength that is just as vital as an outer, physical strength.
