This book does not only teaches how to plan an expedition but also teaches best lessons of management like planning,organising,human resource,Direction and co ordination,controlling,supervising.which we can apply in any part of life. --By Jayraj Joshi 22 September 2014
This is a fantastic book of endurance ,human spirit and determination to summit Annapurna the hard way ,its beautifully written by Chris Bonnington and very detailed .The expedition ended with the tragic death of Ian Clough who contributed massively to the success in summiting ,there was some controvosy on who summited but all this adds to the drama of success on a brutal mountain that takes no prisoners and has a very high death rate which makes Bonningtons expedition even more remarkable . --By Mrs. J. Norman -5 February 2015
purchased this book to take with me to Annapurna Base Camp. We followed much of the route that Bonington's expedition took in 1970. The book was a good read, particularly interesting since I was going there. All it lacked was a good map of the route they took to the summit. --By Stephen A. 22 October 2013

Bonington is an enthusiast first and foremost. When he was writing books like this he was often criticised by his climbing peers for being obsessed with organising, raising money and publicising his exploits. Yet what comes through is that all this was merely a way to enable him to climb and explore, to achieve the summits that had not yet been reached or by routes not yet ascended.
In hindsight this isn't Chris Bonington's best book, but it is still well worth reading - unless, that is, you have a fear of heights...
