Amazon "Best Book" of the Month, May 2012:
FrancisSlakey committed himself to climbing the highest peak on everycontinent and surfing every ocean. The adventure pieces of To the Last Breathare first-rate and remarkable in themselves; whether he's dangling onthe face of El Capitan after catastrophic equipment failure, summitingEverest solo in a blizzard, or leaping from the roof of a building intoa shallow swimming pool as a troubled teenager, Slakey's prose is vividand intense, worthy of the genre's best. But additionally, Slakey hasthreaded an epic adventure tale with a much more personal journey,creating a single, riveting tale of self-discovery. - Jon Foro
