The first edition of this book inspired me to climb a mountain in Borneo. I can't wait to see what I end up doing because of this fully updated edition. The ultimate bucket list for actual and aspiring adventure-seekers.

Review-A-Day

"Six months ago I found myself on top of a 13,000-foot mountain in Malaysian Borneo, shivering in near-freezing temps at five in the morning, perched on the highest spot between the Himalayas and New Guinea, waiting for the sun to rise. I'd started the trek a day earlier, five miles and 7,000 feet below, and had slept for a mere three hours before donning my headlamp at 2 a.m. to shimmy up a bare granite wall to the peak with about 100 other equally groggy hikers. What am I doing here? I wondered. I work for a bookstore, in Oregon. How the hell did this happen?" Megan Zabel, Powells.com (Read the entire Powells.com review)
