I read Extreme Alpinism (also by Twight) nearly every day for a year when it first came out. It really impacted my world view.
For whatever reason, it took me 15 years to get around to reading Kiss or Kill.
The writing is inspiring, abrasive, funny and sad. If you are in a place in life where you are trying to expand personal boundaries or limitations, this is a good read.
The narrator does a good job of catching the cadence and attitude of the writing, but struggles with pronunciation on climbing terms and gear names.

Good story - climbing background helps

Great story, but you need to be an outdoor climber to understand the jargon. The narrator pronounces some terms wrong - 5.11 as "five point one one" instead of "five eleven".
