"One of the funniest books you'll ever read"
Though a parody, it has become one of the most famous and celebrated books of mountaineering literature.

"Years ago, in the days before my hair began to leave my head and take up a more sheltered existence in my ears and nostrils, I passed my afternoons and early evenings as a sub-editor on the business section of The Times." - Bill Bryson
Title: The Ascent of Rum Doodle
Author: W.E. Bowman
