    I am totally fed up with some librarians who are categorising books by an author that have even a tenuous connection to each other into Series view spoiler Rant follows Noting to do with the book One wonders if these are readers or are just on here to be Librarians and be on the Top Librarians lists by doing lots of easy things and don t actually read books I am thinking of an awful b

    I am an armchair adventurer I love reading these stories about hardship, freezing cold temperatures, dangerous conditions and general misery while I m wrapped up in a blanket, cozy warm and with a steaming cup of tea nearby The Deadliest Catch was one of my favorite TV shows I m also so very impressed by the author s accomplishment to summit the world s 14 highest peaks without supplemental ox

    I got the opportunity to climb with Ed Viesturs on Rainier in July 2010 It was by accident and only for half an hour I didn t know who he was at the time, but as he welcomed me onto his rope halfway up Cathedral Gap, I was struck by his charisma and positivity as I struggled with the thin air and the fat kid spilling his last two meals on the rocks behind me As we climbed, he continually called out enc

    While I absolutely respect Ed Viesturs not just for his accomplishments in mountaineering but also for his efforts to maximize safety, to rescue stranded climbers, tohelp scientists understand HACE and HAPE, and for his many MANY donations to wonderful charities this book was just sort of ho hum His compartmentalization on mountains, while necessary, does not necessarily make for great narration in a story Not

    Ed Viesturs is kind of a dweeb, but I have to admit he s a workhorse superman One foot in front of the other, repeat, repeat, repeat He said at the top of some summits you have to take 15 breaths for every step Damn

    The life of a mountaineer and his pursuit of the fourteen 8000ers A very engaging book that succeeds in depicting the passion, determination, and emotional waves that animate Viesturs and lead him repeatedly to the top of the world and from there with the same intensity back home The last chapter is an unnecessary reiteration of the meaning of mountaineering, in which the author feels the need to explain maybe first of all to hi

    While I found reading about all the mountain expeditions interesting, I had a problem connecting with the author I think he reminded the reader too many times about how great he was at making decisions, what an incredible athlete he was, how attractive he was to the ladies He very well may be all of these things, and he has accomplished incredible feats, but I found his propensity to brag exhausting...

    I was handed this book by a colleague, saying, Hey, you re Latvian, too, aren t you Indeed, I am, and if perhaps my first spark of interest in this book came from that Ed Viesturs father, Elmars Viesturs, came to the U.S very much by the same route as my own parents, refugees from the Soviet occupation of Latvia then it soon enough veered farto his achievements in mountainclimbing I d heard of Viesturs before I d seen a few film clips of his rema

    It s impossible not to respect Ed Viesturs accomplishments That does not mean you need to love his writing I found the book interesting, primarily because I am passionate about climbing mountains myself There is a lot of back story here that, although interesting and possibly even necessary for a book like this, is a bit tiresome I would have preferred to have had the climbs described indetail I m not sure that would have pleased other, though You can t w

    The stories jumped all over the place, both in chronology and in length And although the message is about getting down the mountain safely, the theme isn t interesting enough to play through the whole book The author ...
