Product Overview

At age thirty-four, Richard Gunther had achieved the American Dream. But even after rising above the emotional hardship of childhood abandonment to serve in World War II and make a small fortune in real estate, Gunther?s insatiable appetite for extreme experiences and meaningful connections with his fellow human beings drove him to a whole new adventure in the second half of life?one involving spiritual, scientific, pseudoscientific, and even hallucinogenic experimentation. In what was originally meant as a private memoir for his sons, Gunther?now an octogenarian?does more than simply recount a life of thrill-seeking; his journey is a blueprint for progression from isolation, limitation, and shallow everyday experience to self-knowledge, self-expression, and deeper engagement with life. How High Is Up? is about the risks, the passion, and the emotional self-awareness that lead to real fulfillment. Brimming with its author?s contagious enthusiasm, this life story recounts everything from treks to Kilimanjaro and rehabilitation work in the slums of Israel to grueling marathons and extraterrestrial research. Gunther?s tale proves that anything is possible in the lives of those who never cease to ask, ?How high is up??
