It's fascinating to listen to what drives various people to such great sacrifices. A great review of the peak's history.
I first saw the documentary on these guys, and their book goes into so much more detail. I won't pretend to follow every detail of the science, but the basic arguments are clear and accessible. It's brilliant to see two guys who have the sense to step back and see the whole picture!
Having never read Treasure Island, I didn't get references to it before. This was a good way to ingest a classic. Well narrated.
Unless you're perfect with self-control, you need to listen to this book! Amazing. So many insights it requires multiple listens. I even bought the print version!
