Not just black and white,
This review is from: Dark Summit: The Extraordinary True Story of Everest's Most Controversial Season (Hardcover)
This is an extremely well written book, that doesn't simplify the story into 'heroes and villains' as the mainstream media do. Unlike 'into thin air' or 'the climb', this isn't a first person account, which enables a more rounded and objective view of the circumstances and benefits from Heil's journalistic approach.
Those who have seen the Discovery 'Everest' series featuring Russell Brice will also find it an interesting companion piece, as it gives behind the scenes details regarding the expedition featured in the programme.
