Alpine Mountaineering: Essential Knowledge for Budding Alpinists, 5 Oct. 2012
Great book. If you are just starting out, or want to learn the technics needed for your first trip to the Alps this is a great resource. The information is well presented and the author goes straight to the point with clear instructions.
Almost everything is covered, from the clothing you'll need to how to move safely on rock and ice.
There are a few routes recommend at the end of the book that would make for a great start on the Alps.
