Book and DVD


Erik has written two very popular books: his autobiography, Touch the Top of the World;  and The Adversity Advantage, a compilation of his experiences in facing adversity, whether in the mountains, business or other areas of life. 

Three of Erik's expeditions have been made into award-winning documentary films, and his autobiography was made into a feature film.

You can purchase these products individually through our partners. Alternatively you can purchase packages directly from us, which saves you money, and the books come signed.

For businesses, Erik partnered with the Franklin Covey organization to produce the Everest Leadership package. This is a high-impact program for developing teamwork and leadership skills.


This package consists of the soft cover version of Erik's autobiography and The Adversity Advantage. This combination is only available from this web site and both books are signed.
