No Way Down: Life and Death on K2

No Way Down: Life and Death on K2, the new book from Graham Bowley, is getting a lot of attention since being released a couple of weeks ago. Although several hundred feet shorter than Mt. Everest, K2, the second highest mountain in the world, is far more dangerous. The death rate on K2 is much higher than that of Everest.

In No Way Down, Bowley re-creates one of the most dramatic tales of death and survival in mountaineering history, taking readers through the tragic 2008 K2 ascent that claimed the lives of eleven climbers, severely injured two others, and made headlines around the world.

I came across this video that I thought was quite interesting. It's kind of like a movie trailer - except it's for the book. Great marketing idea!
