I am addicted to mountaineering books, the "who gets killed next on Everest" type. The Bad Burgess Boys were mentioned periodically in these. Just having read their own account of themselves and their adventures, I was very surprised and delighted by their flair for writing and obvious intelligence. Very few climbers who write about their own experiences seem to be able to analyze risks and apply prudence when necessary. These guys have done it all and lived to tell the tale. I had wondered if the title "Book of Lies" was tongue in cheek, because the book seemed very honest to me. I just read a quote from one of the twins that confirmed my hunch: "there's not a lie in it." One of the most enjoyable books I've read in a long while.
