Loved both books when I read them 10 years ago. It is one of those rare stories that regularly surface back into my mind.
I can see some parallels between the Everest and the scuba diving businesses in the tropics. People earning a living in a foreign land, doing what they love; they too have incentives to turn a blind eye to the expertise of their clients. Diving is nowhere near as deadly, though.

Hi Xavier,
great point about the scuba diving business! It makes a lot of sense.
