This is a great adventure story which moves along well and is quite interesting. If you like reading about adventure and mountain climbing or if you like books on Mount Everest then this book will interest you.

a must read for anyone contemplating a trek up any of the high continental peaks. these guys make it seem so easy!

i read this after i hiked kilimanjaro. it has inspired me - i am now contemplating trips up aconagua and elbrus.

While not particularly well-written in my opinion, this is an engaging story of two older guys who dodgedly pursue their challenging goal of climbing the highest points on all 7 continents.

Not as well written as Into Thin Air, but interesting nonetheless.

I also did not think that this book was particularly well written, but it was a very interesting account about two businessmen who realized their dream of climbing the seven summits - the highest peak on each continent, and how they grew personally in the process.
