"Overall, this book aims to provide a ''critical treatment of the possibilities and pitfalls of mountaineering tourism''. I would suggest that it succeeds. (...) It does provide a valuable resource for anyone seeking a glimpse into some of mountaineering's history, geography, guided experiences, alpine clubs, relationships to the environment and local communities, risk, ethics, and safety." - Mountain Research and Development 2016
