5.0 su 5 stelle Conquering your own Kilimanjaro 14 luglio 2012
Di Lada Ray - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This book is about many things. At forty, the author, M.G. Edwards, finds himself at a crossroads. Leaving behind the unfulfilling job as part of the American Foreign Service, he embarks on a grueling, excruciating, and at times scary, journey to the top of Africa, the famous Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Sound familiar? How many of us have gone through the same thing at some point in our lives? How many left an unfulfilling job behind, packed a backpack or a suitcase and embarked on a far away journey to look for answers? Only to discover that all of our answers lie within.

I was interested to follow the author's journey to the top and the challenges he encountered along the way. But I was especially curious to read about the dynamics of his little group's interactions with the crew of local guides, cooks and helpers, whose job was to carry the tourists' supplies and tents up the mountain. For me, that put in striking perspective the harsh realities of local inhabitants compared to the "wealthy" Westerners dropping in for a brief visit.

The book includes a large number of photos, documenting the entire trip. I am very visual and in my opinion, the journey came alive through these photos. This was one of the best features of the book and I have to commend the author for including them. The book is a rather quick and easy read. In the second edition, I didn't notice any errors mentioned in one of the previous reviews.

If you are considering a trip to Kilimanjaro, the author does an excellent job of providing guidance and tons of useful information regarding such mundane, but unavoidable, subjects as fees, procedures, hiring and interacting with guides/helpers, as well as local conditions. The addendum provides a number of other useful tips and local information, invaluable for future climbers.

This is the first book in M.G. Edwards' World Adventurers Series. I am looking forward to reading about the author's various other world adventures!

5.0 su 5 stelle A superbly written book that can change your stars. 9 dicembre 2012
Di David C. Cassidy - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
When I began reading Kilimanjaro: One Man's Quest To Go Over The Hill, I quickly realized two things. First, M. G. Edwards is a superbly talented writer. Second, anything is possible.

This inspirational true story chronicles the day-by-day hiking trek to the summit of Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain. Fascinating by itself, the real story is the courage and fortitude of the author as he summons the will to confront not only the perils of the mountain, but a far more dangerous demon: a burning mid-life crisis.

At forty years of age, out of shape, and struggling with an unsatisfying and demoralizing career, Michael Edwards knew that something had to give. Life had to change. For many people, such frustration and fear is all too real and paralyzing. Better the demon we know, no matter how unhappy and unfulfilled we are.

Virtually overnight--well, several nights--Michael Edwards changed his stars. Tackling something as monstrous as a mountain, he overcame adversity, cold, heat, searing aches and pains, channeling all of these victories toward a single goal: to prove to himself that from this point forward, nothing could stand in his way. Not a mountain, not an unhappy life.

Read this book. Change your stars. It's that good.
4.0 su 5 stelle An inspiring analogy for personal change 19 gennaio 2013
Di A. McLaughlin - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
As MG Edwards departs the confines of his usual life in seek of something more, his hike up Africa's tallest mountain becomes an analogy for personal change. While he delves almost exclusively into his own thoughts and experiences and relates little to the mountain or guides, the real story is in shifting the direction of his life. He contemplates leaving his job in the U.S. Foreign Service State Department to pursue the craft of writing, relaying valuable insight and lessons.

I felt that some of the thoughts and ideas were retold unnecessarily, and that some of the sentences could have been more concise. That said, Edwards is a skilled storyteller, and KILIMANJARO seems an ideal story for anyone contemplating major life decisions. The detailed information guide at the end and gorgeous photographs throughout add to the book's enjoyment and usefulness, making it well worth the purchase price. I look forward to learning more of Edwards' adventures as he journeys on!

4.0 su 5 stelle Parts of the book were gripping........ 7 novembre 2012
Di jewel-light - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I bought this book because I know the author and it is always fun reading books written by people I know.

Once I started reading the book I could not put it down - I wanted to find out if he made it to the summit. Finding about his reasons for climbing the mountain and preparing for it was somewhat interesting but the trek itself was gripping. Would he? Could he? I did not know and I wanted to find out.

Having read this book do I want to climb Africa's highest mountain? No! However I would recommend to family or friends who wanted to go on this incredible adventure to read this book so that they might be prepared to take their "quest over the hill."

5.0 su 5 stelle Couldn't put it down 25 aprile 2012
Di Uncle Phil - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I admit I bought this book because the author is a friend.

I started reading it because that's what friends do.

I couldn't put it down because it is a well written story about a real person's adventure, triumphs, fears, challenges and success. It's not about a superhero but a person like me going on the type of adventures I like to go on. I take that back. He is my hero.
