About the Author
WILL GADD won "every major ice competition in the world in '98 and '99 (ESPN X Games, Courchevel Invitational)" as well as the 2000 Ice World Cup. He writes for the major climbing magazines and is frequently featured on panels at the Banff Mountain Book and Film Festival. He says he started climbing with his parents before he could walk. Thirty years later, he still spends at least 100 days a year tied into a rope. Over the last several years he has put up new ice and mixed climbs, taught climbing clinics and developed a mania for paragliding. For more on/by Will, see willgadd.com.

I thought this book was quite good at explaining the basics (basic ice climbing, ice protection, belaying), but when it came to intermediate topics (such as mixed climbing) it was less useful. For this reason I was less happy with this book because I was hoping to learn some some new techniques for mixed routes.
On the plus side the writing style is enjoyable, making for an interesting easy read.
If you can find a copy in your local library, or you can get it at a bargain price it is well worth reading. If you are looking for a first book on ice climbing (even with the good introductionary section in this book) I would suggest "Freedom of the Hills".
