5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book, a must read..., 27 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...for any adventure enthusiast or sport lover.

Brilliantly written, Harriet obviously thoroughly and comprehensively researched the whole thing from start to finish. Absolutely fascinating to not only find out the truth behind the successful Everest climb of 1953 but also to learn how important Pugh's work was - the basis of so much sports science we rely on today.

I would recommend this to anyone that has ever read another book associated with Everest or any of the explorers biographies. You will be surprised and pleased you read the other side of the story.
