Book introduction:

Yet another book that covers the tragic event that happened in 1996 at Mount Everest. Anatoli Boukreev's defence to the unfavourable account of his conducts by Jon Krakauer in "Into thin air".

My review:

Having read both books, I must say I found Jon Krakauer's book somewhat biased and was unfair to Anatoli.
