Why read it?
1 author picked Everest as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?
This is the Everest Bible. It has it all: every fact, every myth, every attempt, every failure, and the ultimate success. By rights, this book shouldn’t really work—so many attempts, so many near-misses, so many personality clashes, so many tragedies—but somehow it builds. The personalities are outsized, of course, the egos gigantic, and that helps, but the mountain is just too famous to ever be dull.
Our community of 6,000+ authors has personally recommended 10 books like Everest.
