There are some greatcolor pictures in the center of the book, a "Lessons from the Death Zone" discussion of life philosophy Purja has taken away from his climbs, and a page of Purja's world records. There's a mention every once in a blue moon of past disasters, like the avalanches on K2 in 2008, but it's just surprising to me that while talking about how brutal Nanga Parbat was the book didn't cover some of the more infamous deaths on that mountain. This is a shorter book (just over 150 pages) that I can see being popular with readers who like nonfiction tales about war or adventures.

He reveals how leadership, a willingness to learn, integrity and collaboration are essential qualities behind the world’s greatest mountaineering feats. I wanted to read slowly and enjoy every sentence, but there were moments when the book just got me and I turned pages without stopping for hours.

Luck also seems to have favoured him as he went from mountains to mountains even when he was extremely tired or unwell. Nims claims credit for inspiring others to try to tackle more than just 1 or 2 8,000ders in a single season. There are big opportunities lying ahead and I truly hope that a next writing attempt (maybe using a professional writing assistance) will be able to take advantage. Matt Allen does a really good job of organising the material and it’s really well put together and exciting – the photos are great, too. From his childhood growing up in Nepal, to a career as an elite soldier in the British army, Nimsdai shows how his early life shaped him and enabled him to go beyond what people though was possible.

Purja is a man well used to hostile environments —and it’s hard to imagine one more hostile than the death zone (above 8,000m). Reading this, you cannot doubt, for one second, that Purja has earned every peak and plaudit with blood, sweat and no tears. And I'm glad I read the book, too, because there was more details and information and drama than the movie explored. Nepali climber Nims Purja is the first man ever to summit all fourteen of the world’s 8000 meter “Death Zone” peaks in less than seven months.Those who have family sick or dying, those who emigrate abroad or feel lonely, those who want to travel and have no money, those who want to become healthier. Man muss ihn nicht sympathisch finden, man kann durchaus kritisieren, dass er etwas fahrlässig mit seiner eigenen Gefühlswelt umgeht bzw.

His kickboxing days at an young age, Gurkha training and Special Forces helped him gain strength, stamina and dedication which he could transfer in the extreme environments. Purja seems like an outlier — offering help, generating positivity where there is fear, pushing on when everyone argues against it.For all of the talk about perseverance and working toward your goals, there’s not enough talk about handling failure or disappointment, or acknowledging fear and vulnerability.
