Book introduction:

Jon Krakauer's recount of the 1996 tragic events on the mount Everest

My review:

A very tense description of a tragic events. 1996 was a year when many people died on the mount Everest due to a series of miscalculation and selfishness of some. It raised the question of whether professional tour guide's judgement is comprised because of the financial incentive from the client. Mount Everest deserves the highest respect, it is one of the places on Earth where human is at the mercy of nature. It is one of the places where many adventurers would die for .
