Climbing magazine -
The potential trekker or climber would be hard-pressed to find more useful information amassed in a more readable and entertaining style for less money.

The New York Times -
... extremely useful in setting out the do's and don'ts of treks, including how to choose a trail, how to prepare, what to bring and what precautions to take.

The American Alpine Journal -
... the best and most comprehensive guidebook of its kind. Its wealth of information should be as complete and indispensable to the traveler in Nepal as The Joy of Cooking is to the American cook.
