    One thought on “Mountainvision: Lessons Beyond the Summit”

    1. I enjoyed this book. It was a short, easy read. I appreciated the fact that Jeff respected each of his climbing partners and gave them the credit they deserved. I highlighted many of his thoughts on being a "leader" and the importance and joy of being on a "team." So it's not only a great story of "getting a blind guy" to the top of the world, but also shares with the reader some words of wisdom for us all the live by.

    2. A really interesting read. I watched Jeff Evans and his team on Expedition Impossible this summer. This is the type of book I could read with my advisory students to teach valuable lessons on resilience, humility, integrity, teamwork and leadership. Each chapter is short - anywhere from two to five pages. Each chapter details an experience in Evans's life as an adventurer and mountaineer. There is a lesson in each story. An easy read, but one with a lot of value.

    3. 3.5- interesting read! I'm fascinated by the endurance that people show in something like climbing Everest.
