Overcoming vertigo - and countless injuries which left him officially 60% disabled - the ""Real Spiderman"" has scaled over 70 sky scrapers worldwide. Reward and punishment have been received in equal measure and the flamboyant Frenchman has gained international fame and raised thousandsn of pounds for charity. But he has also been arrested, beaten and prosecuted. This is his astounding story.

Review:

"For Robert, tall buildings are his mountains. He eulogises the views from their summits and revels in the freedom." -- The Guardian

"Robert is either a story of inspiration and a man living his dreams or a complete nut job, depending on perception." -- South China Morning Post, Annemarie Evans

"Robert is perhaps the most daring climber of all time. His "free climbing" has taken him up some of the most daunting buildings."
-- The Telegraph, Tom Chivers, 04 April 2008

"Robert rises toward the clouds in nearly every city he visits. As one of the world's most amazing people, his autobiography is fascinating."
-- Cairns Media Magazine

Extreme urban free solo climbing: as The
Human Spider demonstrated, it's not merely
the new rock `n' roll. It's actually way, way
more rock `n' roll than rock `n' roll has ever
been, or could hope to be ... If I ever grow up,
I want to be Alain Robert. -- The Herald

Prepare to clutch at the pages, holding on,
hardly daring to breathe, as Robert tells of
clinging to giant buildings. Reading With Bare
Hands may induce serious vertigo. Pulses will
quicken. Hearts will thump. -- Cairns Media Magazine

Robert declares his purpose to be the `kicking
of the ass of society'. He is nothing if not
tireless in his ass kicking. He has now climbed
more than 80 of the world's highest buildings. -- The Times

Robert is either a story of inspiration and a
man living his dreams or a complete nut job,
depending on your perception. -- South China Morning Post

The world's greatest `urban free solo' climber
has an arrest sheet as long as his arm, which
in his case is very long from all the trauma he
puts his muscles and tendons through. -- The Independent

Told in his own words, the story of Robert's lifelong urge to climb is an absorbing and very charming one.
-- Evening Herald, Tom Galvin, 27 September 2008
