Personally, I love to read stories about mountain climbing, although I myself have never climbed a mountain and have no intention of ever doing so. Willis managed to bring an interesting mix of stories together to highlight the wide variety of dangers that one might face while summiting the world's highest peaks - both the expected (freak storms, human error) and the unexpected (corrupt officials, equipment failure).
Some of the stories were absolutely, spine-tinglingly chilling. Others were on the boring side; there was more than one that I skimmed through or skipped over entirely. Many left me absolutely astounded. I don't know if I'll ever understand these men (I don't think any of the stories were written by women or even included any; a disappointment) who look death in the face during some of the world's worst climbing disasters yet return to this past time again and again anyway - some of them to die in later disasters.
If you enjoy reading adventure stories, this book will not disappoint.
