Product description

Review

"An interesting and worthwhile addition to the literature of the Munros and a book worth reading by anyone with an interest in the hills and hillwalking..." --Chris Townsend, one of the world s most experienced backpackers and outdoor writers

This book quickly drew me in. These journeys are precisely depicted through the author's perceptive eye for detail and his obvious passion for the outdoors. --Steven Fallon, mountain guide and record-holder for completing all the Munros 15 times

"This is a wonderful book that should be read, and will then probably be re-read, by just about anyone with any interest in Scotland's mountains. At one level "The Call of the Mountains" by Max Landsberg is a "how I compleated my round of Munros" book, albeit a particularly well written one. But there is so much more here too…." --Undiscovered Scotland

About the Author

MAX LANDSBERG was born in Scotland and studied Natural Sciences at Cambridge University. He is an advisor to the leaders of some of the world's largest companies and from the 1990s onwards has been one of the founders of business coaching and personal development in the UK.

His earlier books, The Tao of Coaching, The Tao of Motivation and The Tools of Leadership are regarded as classics in their fields and have remained in print for fifteen years.

Max is one of the UK's more persistent and wide-ranging hikers, and has trekked across mountain ranges worldwide. He completed his round of the Munros in 2012, and in 2013 completed the 'Furth Munros' of England and Wales, Scotland's Cape Wrath Trail, Corsica's GR20 and Switzerland's Alpine Pass Route.

His future plans include establishing a new hiking trail across Scotland, circumnavigating the Mediterranean's largest islands by sea kayak, and trekking Alaska's eight National Parks.
