Truly inspirational read. Very well written, great pictures - in depth chilling descriptions that take you to the summit from the comfort of your armchair.
These guys are actual heroes.
Silly idea - amazing read.
Get hold of a copy.

I've read the book and been moved by the friendships and support that existed through the whole expedition. I enjoyed Alan's style of writing, almost a diary but not quite. He writes well about the people involved and was right to leave the final words to the expedition leader. Tell him well done and to all who took part you should be very proud of your achievements and a wonderful adventure up in the Himalayas.
by Averelle Nicklin
A fascinating and engaging read - Curr tells the story in a way that keeps you turning the pages and wanting to know more. He's not too scared to tell it how it is and successfully focuses on all the people involved, including the various sub plots that happen as a result of bringing together such a mix of different characters. At the same time he manages to weave humour and entertainment into what is a gripping and thought provoking story. From the pub to the pitch he keeps you engaged in what is a truly awesome account of an incredible adventure.
Such an inspiring story and a brilliant read. For someone who isn't in to cricket in the slightest, I didn't have high hopes - however I couldn't put it down. The author writes with passion and energy and really draws you into the whole experience.

Cricket on Everest is an engaging and inspiring true story of tenacity, team work and endeavour. You don't need to be a cricket fan or a climber to enjoy this book - Curr's detailed narrative and story-telling prowess will keep you entertained from start to finish as Everest and cricket take a back seat to the personal stories of the many people involved. If this doesn't have you planning a trip to Nepal, nothing will.
by Sam Foskett
If you like cricket; read it. If you are a fan of adventure against the odds; read it. If you want to be inspired and amazed at what a group of people thrown together can do; read it. In other words....read it. A truly sensational read for pretty much every book lover. Expertly written, dynamic, fast paced, literate, anecdotal and amusing this really does tick all the boxes. Thoroughly enjoyable.
