The Venice Sketchbook - Rhys Bowen - A Short Summary and Review

Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the Book Into Thin Air:

Climbing Mt. Everest May 10, 1996, and living to tell about it

My favorite John Krakauer quote from the book:

"Any person who would seriously consider it [climbing Mount Everest] is almost by definition beyond the sway of rational argument."

Questions I pondered while reading Into Thin Air:

Why do we (as humans) push so many boundaries?

Should Mt. Everest be open to the inexperienced?

My review of Into Thin Air:

Wouldn't consider the climb now - not that I had before.

14ers are plenty big enough for me.

1 in 4 is an ugly bet with your life.
