Sub-title: My Journey Home from Everest
Finishing up on my 2016 reading posts! I picked this up at a Christmas book exchange. It's the first person account of one of the hikers in an ascent on Mt Everest. He suffered frostbite, was "left for dead" and lost almost both of his hands. He shares how his obsession with mountain climbing almost ruined his family. Not particularly good writing but a compelling tale and lessons even for those who don't go off climbing mountains.
