Product Description

Review

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

This book still reads well after more than 30 years. Written from Bonnington's perspctive as leader, he provides not only the necessary detail of the expedition, but concentrates on the affect on individual morale, motivation and the physical endurance required to accomplish technical climbs at high altitude. There is also a superb chapter penned by Dougal Haston, and an insight into the enigmatic Don Whillans. Dont miss it!

By A Customer on 25 Feb. 2002
Format: Paperback
This was the first of Chris Bonington's books that I ever read, picked up in a bookshop (in its original edition)out of curiosity. I'd never climbed rocks or mountains myself - I just thought it looked like a good story. And it was - I was absolutely gripped by it, fascinated by the bravery and tenacity of the climbers and the hostility of the environment they faced. I spent the next few years tracking down every book I could find on mountaineering and rock climbing and read everything Chris Bonington had written.
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...

This is the first book I have read by Chris Bonnington. A bit of an eye opener into his character. The book itself was a bit slow to get going. However once they arrived at Base Camp, the book really took a new lease of life and I couldn't put it down. I ended up finishing the book at 4am in the morning and then immediately got onto Amazon to order another one of his books.
