Steve Fossett biography

Looks like Virgin Books is going to release Steve Fossett's biography in Sept, 2005. Definitely on my to read list.

From the announcement page:
In his forthcoming autobiography, Steve explains why Chasing the Wind has become such a quest for him and in doing so sends a clear message to everyone, that fulfilling your ambitions is not only possible but necessary.

Steve Fosset's Amazing Adventures

I was browsing around the Internet and came across the website of Steve Fosset. Obviously I'd heard of him before, but I had no idea of the extent of his extreme accomplishments. The accomplishments he lists on the Challenges page are amazing: around the world solo ballooning records, solo airplane flight records, solo sailing records, solo glider records, plus swimming the English Channel, completing the Hawaii Ironman, Itarod, etc.
