His three books:

Greatest Adventure" (UK - Headline)
Mit dem Wind um die Welt" (D - Piper Verlag)
have contributed to Bertrand Piccard
becoming known as a "Scientist-adventurer",
one who endeavours to combine the scientific background
inherited from his family with his desire to explore
the great adventure of human life.
"In the most intense moments of my experiences,
part of my mind often prepareswhat I will later recount.
Out of this comes the need to record in writing the
fleeting impressions that I wanted to last forever.
My books have no other purpose than to give readers
the desire to go beyond their limits, not on the Earth
on the seas or in the air, but within themselves."
