Out of honesty, this should actually be called Mountain Sport and Culture, as only a couple of the pages have anything to do with Everest, its history, its region, or its regional culture. Further, there are some glaring errors (for example a picture of the Jasper Tramway next to a detailed description of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway) that make the reader lose trust in the presented information. That said this book, like all books in the DK Eyewitness series, is beautifully laid out and full of digestible information—well worth the 30-40 minutes it takes to read it cover to cover.
