In 1988, Jim Hayhurst, a forty--seven year old ex--advertising executive, became the oldest member of the Canadian Expedition to Mount Everest. The Right Mountain is the riveting story of that climb. He tells you about the life--threatening experiences that affected each member of the team. He describes the critical choices that had to be made, and the lessons that were learned as a result. But it is much more than an adventure story. It is about defining success for yourself---- on your own terms---- in your personal life or in your career. The Right Mountain is inspirational. The story is dramatic. The metaphors compelling. And the messages it contains will stay with you long after the story is over.
