Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
"Extreme adventures provide extreme lessons," declares Aussie mountaineer Scott, who attempts-and fails-to nudge readers toward self-improvement. Droning chapters are arranged thematically: "Traveling Light" concerns what the author (and presumably the reader) learns to live without; similar are "Explore Your Limits" and "Seek Peace Within." Many pages relate vivid climbing adventures, but Scott's incessant self-congratulation stops only long enough to reveal the occasionally encouraging or thoughtful spot. Sparse connections between Scott's exploits and what readers can learn from them provide "advice" that is both diffuse and weak. Though this book is refreshingly unfussy, many writers have climbed this self-help "mountain" before-and with better results. Try Cheryl Richardson's broadly appealing take on developing confidence in Stand Up for Your Life. Not recommended. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
