    For 18 years, Ed Viesturs pursued climbing's holy grail: to stand atop the world's 14 8,000-meter peaks, without the aid of bottled oxygen. But No Shortcuts to the Top is as much about the man who would become the first American to achieve that goal as it is about his stunning quest. As Viesturs recounts the stories of his most harrowing climbs, he reveals a man torn between the flat, safe world he and his loved ones share and the majestic and deadly places where only he can go.

    Cassi says: "Big Ego conquers Big Mountains"
    "Amazing human achievement, great book!"

    Story
    Would you listen to No Shortcuts to the Top again? Why?

    Yes, but mainly to cover details about certain mountains.


    What other book might you compare No Shortcuts to the Top to and why?

    Annapurna, Maurice Herzog.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    It may have been a tad slow. But fair.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nothing extreme, but I did appreciate the details about other mountaineer's current and historic.


    Any additional comments?

    With audio books like these I would like to hear the subject's own voice for narration if the delivery is decent.
