Moss has neatly broken down the "what you need" and "how to plan it" into biking, hiking, climbing, sailing, etc.
My favorite part involved strategies to buy and sell camels (good luck if you think you're going to get the upper hand in the camel market!)
All fun stuff.
Tim's personal experience also stands out. Not just in the practical advice but in the aside and anecdotes from his many personal adventures. And trust me on this. Tim has done it all.
So whether your plan the next great assent or have somewhat humbler adventures in mind you will find this book not only informative but enthusing. Isn't time we all just got out there?
