Although a bit dated, I love that book. It was a wonderful reference for us when we began our 46er journey 5 years ago. I really enjoyed his historical references intermixed with the journal entries. Also, it was interesting to read the journal entries from early hikes with Jim, and later hikes of the same peaks with Ben...noting some of the changes such as the removal of garbage pits at the lean-tos, discontinued public access to the AMR bus, moving of some lean-tos, etc. I still pick up that book frequently.
