Well written and well organized. He tells some good stories and they are not all about 1996, either. Not that I mind reading about 1996 on Everest, where he helped with a rescue before getting back to his own reason for being there. But the rock climbing explanations and pictures are excellent. Also enjoyed reading about his apprenticeship in filmmaking.
