Reviews

"Simpson writes better on the darker side of mountaineering than any man alive" -- Paul Johnson * The Times *
"His concern is that the strong ethics and selfless instincts that have characterised mountaineering in the past are being eroded by modern-day ambition, selfishness and greed" -- Audrey Salkeld * Sunday Times *
"Simpson is an elegant stylist and as usual his prose is laced with humour" * Daily Telegraph *
"An astonishing first chapter describes thoughts and feeling of a mountaineer slowly dying on Everest, while other climbers relax in a tent a few feet away. They know he is dying but ignore his feeble wave. Simpson is horrified that such selfishness should gradually invade the mountaineering fantasy" -- Brian Masters * Mail on Sunday *
