What I liked most about this book was the prose. The writing was excellent: Sarah Williams employs a beautiful, conversational tone that ensures the readers are rooting for her every step of the climb. This book managed to be both entertaining and jam-packed with information. The various details about what to pack and English to Swahili translations added to the in-depth nature of this magical account. I was also enamoured by the sense of adventure that came with reading this book. Climbing a mountain in the dry heat of a far-away land is like something out of a fairytale; Williams fills her story with photographs and cultural details to bring her incredible journey to life.
I would recommend ‘Tips for the Top’ to anyone wishing to embark on the trek up to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. This book certainly doesn’t skimp on the details; providing a day by day account of the journey so that anyone willing to do the same trip will feel completely and utterly prepared. But I would also recommend it to anyone who wants to be inspired by the sheer strength of will of the author. This is truly a story of perseverance and strength of character. Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is no small feat – and the book acts as a tribute to this accomplishment. Strewn amongst the helpful tips and factual information is a story that will inspire even the laziest of couch-potatoes to get up off the sofa and make something of their lives.
‘Tips for the Top’ is a truly inspirational tale about the importance of setting goals and overcoming personal challenges. It is a thoroughly entertaining read that also serves to inform and encourage. Tip of the hat to Sarah Williams!
Looking forward to her next challenge and can't wait to read all about it!
