Review

"Paints an alarming picture of modern arrogance in the face of nature" (Sunday Express)

"Heil is good on the nature of obsession...even better on the hallucinatory effects of hypothermia...the truths he reveals are harsh" (Geographical)

"If you couldn't put down Into Thin Air, you must read Dark Summit to understand what it means to climb Everest today and why anyone might accept the risk." (Peter Athans, seven-time Everest summiter and The North Face athlete)

"Authoritative ... Through rock-solid reporting and vital prose, Heil leads us up into this rarefied world, step by hypoxic step." (Hampton Sides, author of Ghost Soldiers and Blood and Thunder Hampton Sides, author of Ghost Soldiers and Blood and Thunder)

"I consider this book not a sequel to Krakauer's Into Thin Air, but an equal" (Bob Shacochis, author of The Immaculate Invasion)
