Fascinating story that kept me entertained from beginning to end
Not only is this a fascinating story that kept me entertained from beginning to end, it also personally challenged me and helped me in many ways. After reading this book I came to realize that anything you do in life has risk. I'm certainly not planning on climbing Mt. Everest anytime soon, but I have my own big goals and dreams. Steps to the Summit has helped me put the risks involved into perspective and has given me renewed courage to go pursue them!
The embedded videos are AWESOME too, it makes you feel like you are right on the mountain climbing with the author.
Awesome exhilarating read
This book is a must read for anyone who has ever dealt with personal challenges and wanted to give up. Paul and Denise show that personal determination, sacrifice, careful planning and humor along with many other tools will allow anyone to achieve their dreams. These two heroes have taken on unthinkable challenges in both their personal and professional lives, and have wrote this book talking about the tools that allowed them to overcome. I rated this book five stars because you can't put it down, and even when you're done reading it, it's a good book to refer back to over and over.
