We are delighted to be publishing the second book by author Ellis J Stewart, 'Misadventure. Lessons Learned from a Life of Ups and Downs.

We are offering the chance to own a special collectors, hard back edition of this book which will preceed the publication of the paperback and also include photos and images that will not be in the paperback. It will also include an extract from Ellis' first book, Everest. It's Not About the Summit.

This edition will only be available directly from FBS Publishing or from selected events that Ellis may attend. It will not be available in the stores or via Amazon. 

If you loved his first book, you will be thrilled with this next outing from Ellis. From a life full of ups and downs, wins and disasters, he has learnt a lot and has plenty of insight to pass on. It's not a self help book, it's not a journal, but many of his experiences will resonate. Whether it is climbing Everest and getting caught in disasters twice, dealing with family life, or coping with depression and anxiety, there is plenty to lift the reader and inspire.

Ellis J Stewart on Misadventure. Lessons Learned from a Life of Ups and Downs

'In 2015 high on the side of Mount Everest I experienced the darkest days of my life to date. Little did I realise that the darkest day was still to come four years later. But this also led to me discovering the truth about who I was, and what I wanted out of life. It took a life of Misadventure to discover the answers.'

This exclusive, special edition hardback will also dispatch with extras including a bookmark and a signed card and carefully wrapped in tissue paper.


Ellis once wrote to Sir Ranulph Fiennes regarding Everest. In his reply, Sir Ranulph wrote,

'You write a great letter and would write a very funny book ...'

We'd like to think that this is that book!
