4.0 out of 5 stars Competant and enjoyable, 14 Oct 2011
This review is from: High Achiever: The Life and Times of Chris Bonington: The Life and Climbs of Chris Bonington (Paperback)
Having followed Bonington's career this book gave me some insight into the background of his adventures. It is much better than Bonington's own account.
However it does not reveal too much about the man himself. Anyone interested in the development of climbing since the second world war will enjoy it.
