    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.

    Story
    What did you love best about No Shortcuts to the Top?

    Before I read it I wondered how the author was going to tie together all of his adventures into an interesting story.

    But he does it really well, mixing his life story well with the main topics of the book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Viesturs gives good insights into the psychology of mountain climbers (himself included). I got a lot out of this given that I am not a climber myself.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.
