Instead, I picked up Kenton's excellent book, One Man's Everest, and travelled there in the comfort of my armchair. The book reads exactly as Cool speaks and you get a sense of travelling along with him on his various expeditions. You can read my full review on Heason Events.
If you're looking for gift ideas for Christmas, you can't go wrong with One Man's Everest. Buy it on Amazon from £8.99.
