A gripping collection of true stories, from the world's first bungee jump to the peak of Mt. Everest. Tabin's keen observations and lively sense of humor convey both the terror and the exhilaration of nature's greatest challenges which makes Blind Corners a richly detailed chronicle of adventure, comradeship, and inner strength.

I enjoyed this book a lot. The author climbs with several people who have also written books that I have read. It is interesting to see the other side. Tabin is one of the few climbers who will compromise safety for the quest for the summit. Read full review
