Why Read No Ceiling?
by Dr. Glenn Singleman M.B.,B.S. FACRRM Dip.Comm
“Why would you jump out of a perfectly serviceable aircraft?” and “Why would you jump off a perfectly good cliff?” If I had a dollar for every time I have been asked these questions I would be a rich man. Over the years I have waxed lyrical on the virtues of overcoming fear, the science of the emotional brain, the advantages of physical and mental fitness and the self confident joy inspired by achieving the impossible. But from now on, thanks to my beautiful wife Heather, I will only have to respond to these questions with one simple answer – Read ‘No Ceiling’ and you will understand.
This book is the result of a 6-year journey of physical, mental and emotional extremes. Over those long years, Heather transformed herself from a ‘safe’ corporate mum into a world-class extreme sport athlete capable of challenging an iconic world record. As well as changing her body-habitus (from 36% fat to 15% fat), she changed her attitude to life, her attitude to love, her attitude to family and her attitude to the ‘glass ceiling’ that is supposed to prevent women from achieving their full potential. She endured setbacks, tragedy, humiliation and pain to ultimately triumph in the most macho of male dominated sports: rockclimbing, mountaineering, skydiving and BASEjumping. Throughout the most gruelling of extreme boot camps she never lost touch with her femininity, her emotional balance and her radiant beauty. The world record she ultimately achieved shattered conventional wisdom and prejudice about the ‘role’ and ‘limits’ of women (and men!).
‘No Ceiling’ is not a book about extreme sport. It is a classic human ‘vision quest’ drama set in a world that is foreign to most people; a world of eccentrics, misfits, athletes, scientists, visionaries and breathtaking landscapes. At times Heather’s journey might seem outrageous but the woman taking it is intelligent, funny, vibrant and insightful. Her words speak with a clarity and passion that transport the reader into foreign panoramas and subcultures with sympathy and understanding.
I could be accused of bias since I accompanied Heather on much of the journey but the evocative writing inspired me beyond the amazing facts of the story. I couldn’t stop turning the pages even though I knew what happened next. I’m proud that we can add the descriptor ‘author’ to Heather’s impressive list of talents: world record holding extreme sportswoman, mother, wife, vegetarian chef, journalist, marketing manager and professional speaker. She is truly a woman with “No Ceiling”.
