The book is based in the Alps, Himalayas and North America. They revolve around his experiences as a result of his method of climbing - carrying little gear, no real bivi equipment and as a result of this virtually non-stop climbing.
In some ways it is rather disturbing, how can a man who has had 40 friends die as a result of climbing, had broken relationships as a result of climbing and has limited contact with his family as a result of climbing --keep on climbing? He is clearly very talented - most of his new climbs in the Alps have not had a complete second ascent. What comes across is that he has a burning desire to climb, almost at the result of anything else. It is as if by writing he is finding a release about some of the events in his life.
I would recommend it for sure.
I am a different animal from the author. He liked pain and challenge and I like a hot bath and scones. With cream and jam.
All I say is WOW.
