A interesting approach to one of mountaineerings enduring mysteries. Its impossible to seperate Mallory for Irvine but this book trys to focus on the "sencond member" of that team.
The author goes into great detail about the men and the times they were apart of. This then frames the make up of the teams on the mountain. Trying to understand what they were thinking and thier mindset is critical to the final summit bid. Since no one can go back and interview from a historical perspective, Summers does a wonderful job of putting the reader inside that mindset.
If you like mountaineering its a fantastic read. If you like adventure stories its also terrific. If you like historic events its wonderful. This is just a really good read!
