This memoir book in paperback edition come with a new final chapter (IN THE AIR) is a bran-new book and nicely wrapped with protective book-wrapper. The original new book is sold at usual price RM73.14. Now here Only at RM14. World-class free climber Steph Davis delivers a thrilling and infectiously interesting memoir about rediscovering herself through love, loss, and the joy of letting go. The paperback includes a new epilogue in which Davis shares how her husband s tragic accident has affected her relationship to climbing and flying. Steph Davis is a superstar in the climbing community and has ascended some of the world s most awe-inspiring peaks, but when her husband makes a controversial climb in a national park, the media fallout and the toll it takes on her marriage suddenly leaves her without a partner, a career, a source of income... or a purpose. In the company of only her beloved dog, Fletch, Davis sets off on a search for a new identity and discovers skydiving. Falling out of an airplane is completely antithetical to the climber's control she'd practiced for so long, but she perseveres, turning each daring jump into an opportunity to fly, first as a skydiver, then as a base jumper. As she opens herself to falling, she also finds the strength to open herself to love again, even in the wake of heartbreak. And before too long, she meets someone who shares her passion for living life to the limit. With gorgeous black-and-white photos throughout, Learning to Fly is Davis s fascinating account of her transformation. From her early tentative skydives, to zipping-up her first wingsuit, to surviving devastating accidents against the background of breathtaking cliffs, to soaring beyond her past limits, she discovers new hope and joy in letting go. When professional rock climber Steph Davis started skydiving, she discovered new love, hope, and joy in letting go. “It’s not so surprising that on the day of my fifth wedding anniversary I would be crouched in the open door of an airplane, thirteen thousand feet above the Colorado plains, about to jump out. That coincidence of timing really wasn’t.” Steph Davis is a superstar in the climbing community and has ascended some of the world’s most awe-inspiring peaks. But when her husband makes a controversial climb in a national park, the media fallout—and the toll it takes on her marriage—suddenly leaves her without a partner, a career, a source of income...or a purpose. In the company of only her beloved dog, Fletch, Davis sets off on a search for a new identity and discovers skydiving. Though falling out of an airplane is completely antithetical to the climber’s control she’d practiced for so long, she turns each daring jump into an opportunity to fly, first as a skydiver, then as a base jumper, and finds herself indelibly changed. As she opens herself to falling, she also finds the strength to open herself to love again, even in the wake of heartbreak. And before too long, she fortuitously meets someone who shares her passions. Learning to Fly is Davis’s fascinating account of her transformation. From her early tentative skydives, to zipping into her first wingsuit, to surviving devastating accidents against the background of breathtaking cliffs, to soaring beyond her past limits, she discovers new hope and joy in letting go. Learning to Fly isn’t just an adventure but a woman’s story of risk-taking and self-discovery, with love at its heart. From Booklist Review : The life of dedicated rock climber Steph Davis comes crashing down after her husband makes a controversial climb of a popular Utah landmark. The fallout from what Davis dubs “the debacle” is extreme. She is vilified by the climbing community and the authorities, dropped by her top sponsors, and her marriage hits the rocks. Davis takes a break from her climbing career and explores a new pursuit of skydiving and, eventually, BASE jumping. Along the way, Davis finds a new sense of self and new love. Multiple photographs are interspersed throughout the text, and while its interesting to see Davis climbing, diving, and jumping, many of the images, at least in galley proof, run off the page or are too dark to be clearly understood. Davis’ heavy focus on her travails becomes somewhat exhausting, and the other characters remain two-dimensional. In addition, she devotes many pages to detailing her various jumps and climbs; this level of detail will appeal to fellow rock climbers and skydivers, but more casual memoir readers will have a harder time connecting to the content. --Eve Gaus About the Author Steph Davis is a world-renowned climber, skydiver, and BASE jumper.

Her first book, High Infatuation: A Climber s Guide to Love and Gravity, was published in 2007. She lives in Moab, Utah.
