    I ll be honest, the foreword teased the reader with the notion that the author might be the one to provide a suitable answer to this daunting question And in a way, he did He showed, through the experiences of others, how diverse and illusive the answer is I think he provides the solution that an individuals motivations are simply to different and complex to generalize into one explanation He does this with various stories of renowned climbers, each telling their own background, never quite I ll be honest, the foreword teased the reader with the notion that the author might be the one to provide a suitable answer to this daunting question And in a way, he did He showed, through the experiences of others, how diverse and illusive the answer is I think he provides the solution that an individuals motivations are simply to different and complex to generalize into one explanation He does this with various stories of renowned climbers, each telling their own background, never quite the same I suppose this is the message he was establishing from the beginning, that simply because a group of people all share a similar passion or interests, doesn t mean that they share, in any way, comparable motivations.Nevertheless, I think that the lack of a definitive answer, while powerful in its own way, does make the conclusion of this book a bit underwhelming Only upon deep reflection will the reader find the lessons learned in this book to have significant meaning I think this was absolutely a conscious choice by the author, and a good one at that, but it does strike as unconventional

    After reading both Women Who Dare and this book, I strongly prefer recommend this one Why We Climb contained some amazing introspection from a litany of world class climbers their thoughts on life, death sometimes with near death experiences or death of climbing partners friends , risk, adventure, and balancing work passions with family While yes, this book is about climbing, it is also enjoyable for those who are interested in these topics and or generally appreciate nature Depending on After reading both Women Who Dare and this book, I strongly prefer recommend this one Why We Climb contained some amazing introspection from a litany of world class climbers their thoughts on life, death sometimes with near death experiences or death of climbing partners friends , risk, adventure, and balancing work passions with family While yes, this book is about climbing, it is also enjoyable for those who are interested in these topics and or generally appreciate nature Depending on the climber s writing aptitude tone, some of the segments readlike a self help personal growth book than a series of biographies My favorite segment was the cross interviews between Conrad Anker and Peter Croft, though many of the segments were quite compelling It is a lengthy book, good diversity of types of climbers backgrounds to the climbers, though still pretty limited regarding actual diversity metrics

    This was a great introduction into the world of climbing The book profiles an assortment of accomplished climbers The pictures are terrific and most of the profiles are interesting I m increasingly smitten with climbing, from the romance of the dirtbag lifestyle to the mental and physical benefits It s a lifestyle I d love to get to know firsthand, if only I could manage to getthan ten feet off the ground without freaking out

    Full disclosure I m a climber who is most comfortable on easier Alpine peaks Mt Hood, Mt Rainier, Mt Baker, Mt Adams and the like and glacier travel rather than rock climbing bouldering I m most certainly impressed by highly skilled technical rock climbers.I think this book is probably best suited for non climbers.For the experienced climber, there s going to be a lot of head nodding in agreement with regard to what the various climbers have to say about training and mental attitude Tha Full disclosure I m a climber who is most comfortable on easier Alpine peaks Mt Hood, Mt Rainier, Mt Baker, Mt Adams and the like and glacier travel rather than rock climbing bouldering I m most certainly impressed by highly skilled technical rock climbers.I think this book is probably best suited for non climbers.For the experienced climber, there s going to be a lot of head nodding in agreement with regard to what the various climbers have to say about training and mental attitude That s not to say that what they have to say isn t valuable, just that I ve heard it before or have already figured it out for myself.The best content in this book is the climber profiles I liked reading about where they got their start, what their most proud moments are and what their goals were The author did a good job of not filtering the interviews of the various climbers as evidence by Peter Croft describing little black kids spinning in circles , Alex Honnold mentioning chicks and Chris Kalous referring to the mother of my child Not the worst things in the world to day, but I found them surprising.Approximately half of the photos in this book are beautiful and amazing the other half are average candid shots that don t add much to the book
