'This book has a fantastic structure, and each chapter develops
from the basics to a slightly more advanced perspective. It is a
beautiful book, with a clear layout and some great anecdotes
throughout. It has incredibly useful information through each
chapter, with enough to keep any keen climber busy and to give you
ideas to focus on.' - Emma Twyford, Chalkbloc
'This will form the backbone of your climbing and training life. In times of struggle and disillusion you'll be able to read back on a new mental cue. When you've tapped out you fingerboard adaptation, there's another protocol. When you're looking for a new technique drill to up your slab climbing game, it's there. You used to have to buy all the training books in the climbing store, now you just need one!' - Tom O'Halloran, Vertical Life
