* It's a fascinating book about a fascinating man, and is certainly the book on Haston. If you have even a passing interest in Haston or the British climbing/mountaineering scene from the 50's to the 70's, of which Haston was undoubtedly one of the biggest characters, this book is worth every penny Customer review, Amazon.co.uk * This biography does not pull any punches. Great for the armchair climber Customer review, Amazon.co.uk
