Red Bull X-Alps athlete Jon Chambers has published a remarkable first-person account of competing in the world’s best paragliding race.

Called Hanging in There the account is a very readable, fast-paced exploration of what it’s like to actually take part in the Red Bull X-Alps.

The book is available through Amazon as a download for the Kindle. However, you don’t need a Kindle to read it – simply search for and download the Kindle App to your smartphone, tablet or computer and it will work that way.
