    The Climb is a true, gripping, and thought-provoking account of the worst disaster in the history of Mt. Everest: On May 10, 1996, two commercial expeditions headed by experienced leaders attempted to climb the highest mountain in the world, but things went terribly wrong...

    Where does The Climb rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A far better book describing the events of the Everest 96 disatser than the fiction John Krakauer wrote in the book Into Thin Air.

  • Into Thin Air

    The definitive, personal account of the deadliest season in the history of Everest by the acclaimed journalist and author of Into the Wild. Read by the author. Also, hear a Fresh Air interview with Krakauer conducted shortly after his ordeal.

    What disappointed you about Into Thin Air?

    All assumptions done by mr Krakauer. That he is not presenting all facts. And that he present himself as a hero of high alltitude climbing.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jon Krakauer again?

    No


    How could the performance have been better?

    get fact right and dont assume stupid things


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Into Thin Air?

    All of it!!
