Wish I had found this book years ago. A fun book to read and study with many illustrations. The authors cover glacier anatomy, equipment, knots,and all forms of general skills. Learned a lot even though I have been exposed to glaciers for 20 years. Highly recommend to read before first glacier experience even if using a guide service.

Great guide. Does suggest different methods from Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills, but I suppose that just makes for more options.
I wish it had talked a little more about getting over the lip, but I didn't expect this book to be exhaustive on the subjective.
