Hi Seb, So far I have just said to my clients to order it, but for this summer I added your book as a part of my glacier and alpine climbing product. I have to say that it is at the moment best basic book for alpine and glacier travelling. Good and clear pictures and not too much information for beginners to cope. Looking forward to see next books. All the best – Jussi  www.mountainguide.fi
