"Gripping."–The Sunday Times (London)
"Reads like a thriller . . . exciting . . . It is a real page-turner . . . fresh and vivid."
"This book is so refreshing. Here is a cameraman, who didn’t expect to get up high, seeing the whole business of climbing at great altitude with new eyes. Against the odds, he weathered the storms and made the summit. His
account will join the classics of Everest literature."
–Audrey Salkeld, co-author of The Mystery of Mallory and Irvine and editor of World Mountaineering
