This has some great analogies or applicable lessons to life. There are some great quotes too. This is really only a 100 page book. There are so many pictures and chapters. I would recommend this to anyone who is going through a difficult challenge or if they are wanting to do some self-assessment.

Great read.

Me gustó mucho este libro, me hizo recordar cuando yo subí el Iztacihuatl y los peligros que representa hacer un ascenso.

Al final ofrece herramientas de crecimiento personal basadas en la experiencia del ascenso al Everest.

Lo recomiendo ampliamente.
