5.0 out of 5 stars a great insight into a climber, 1 Feb 2013
This book is a fascinating insight into a man who have committed himself to climbing - on the mountains and in life.

a wonderful read which focuses on Nick rather than his climbing achievements and a great inspiration to follow your aspirations.

Not a long book - comprised of a many short chapters. Nick's writing style is well paced and while at times disjointed feels like a story told - rather than a story read.

5 Stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars the mountain bible, 1 Dec 2011
This is a one-stop-shop to get you learning (or refreshing) you mountaincraft, from leader placed protection to glacier crossing.

With testimonials on the back from the likes of Conrad Anker, i think you can probably take it as good advice.

have begged and borrowed older prints, and own the 50th anniversary edition.

well worth it,

5.0 out of 5 stars primaloft warmth this winter, 28 Nov 2011
Have recently bought this product, intended for general outdoor use (hillwalking to scottish winter mountaineering). Due to the variable conditions in the UK a primaloft jacket is a good compormise between down's warmth and the benefits of sythetic materials in the wet.

so far worth the money... but as always, time and experience will tell.

4.0 out of 5 stars An amazing compilation, 31 Aug 2003
This review is from: Dude Where's My Car (Audio CD)
The “Dude, Where’s My Car?” soundtrack is one of the best, possibly only beaten by that of “Cruel Intentions”, Starting with ‘Voodoo Lady’ it opens up into a celebration of such a fantastic film, each song conjuring a scene from the film.
Sadly some of the better songs from the movie were excluded for reasons unknown to me. However, if there is one soundtrack to a film you buy this year, let it be this one. With a healthy blend of Indie, New Punk and Rock it makes for fantastic listening in a car or on the sofa.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blows you away.... into schizophrenia, 31 Aug 2003
This review is from: Circle (Audio CD)
This album starts with insane rambling which continues through-out, it as first seems mildly comical but moves on to be more than mildly disturbing, yet somehow leads to pleasurable listening…
It is described as hip-hop, yet I feel Trip-hop would make a better description as the boundaries of hip-hop were crossed well before this album starts, it is where surreal meets the insanity of hip-hop with remarkably good results.
This album by Boom Bip & Doseone will open your eyes to another reality; “Circle” will scare and warp you… possibly for the better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected!, 5 May 2003
This review is from: Indica Brazilica (Audio CD)
I heard a random track of this album and was compelled to buy it, as an addict to chill-out and ambient music this seemed a logical step to take to moving on to a new variety of music to drift to... as it happens, after purchasing it and listening i discovered that it was not what i expected. It is a total compilation of all different genres from bollywood-rock to the blissfully chilled out ambience of The Thievery Corporation. I was unpleasantly suprised at first but soon became seduced by the hypnotic beats of the brazilian music and the flowing vocals of the Asian beats. As much as i now enjoy it, it is far from the dreamy chill-out i bought it for.
