      As MG Edwards departs the confines of his usual life in seek of something , his hike up Africa s tallest mountain becomes an analogy for personal change While he delves almost exclusively into his own thoughts and experiences and relates little to the mountain or guides, the real story is in shifting the direction of his life He contemplates leaving his job in the U.S Foreign Service State Department to pursue the craft of writing, relaying valuable insight and lessons.I felt that some of the th [...]

      Conquering your own KilimanjaroThis book is about many things At forty, the author, M.G Edwards, finds himself at a crossroads Leaving behind the unfulfilling job as part of the American Foreign Service, he embarks on a grueling, excruciating, and at times scary, journey to the top of Africa, the famous Mt Kilimanjaro Sound familiar How many of us have gone through the same thing at some point in our lives How many left an unfulfilling job behind, packed a backpack or a suitcase and embarked on [...]

      M.G Edwards Kilimanjaro One Man s Quest to Go Over the Hill represents as much of an extraordinary personal journey as it is a physical challenge.Forty years old and on the verge of midlife crisis, the author is at a crossroad continue in an unfulfilling career as an American Diplomat or follow his heart s true desire since childhood of becoming a writer One choice brings admiration, glamor, security, but also dissatisfaction the other is tentative at best He writes The future weighed on my mind [...]

      M.G Edwards account of his hike up Kilimanjaro was a metaphor for his life Stuck in a job that was unfulfilling and in the midst of a self proclaimed mid life crisis, Edwards teamed up with three others to climb Mt Kilimanjaro Stationed in Africa with the State Department, he was ready to quit his job, but first he had to prove to himself that he could do something major.Full of self doubt, he often compares himself to the fictional Harry Street, of Hemingway s Snows of Kilimanjaro I ve read a c [...]

      When I began reading Kilimanjaro One Man s Quest To Go Over The Hill, I quickly realized two things First, M G Edwards is a superbly talented writer Second, anything is possible.This inspirational true story chronicles the day by day hiking trek to the summit of Kilimanjaro, Africa s highest mountain Fascinating by itself, the real story is the courage and fortitude of the author as he summons the will to confront not only the perils of the mountain, but a far dangerous demon a burning mid life [...]

      Kilimanjaro takes you on an epic journey of self discovery as you enjoy one man s battle with both a mid life crisis and the penultimate challenge of a mountain that peaks at 19,340 feet and destroys many a person along its path The mountain is brought to life with great descriptions of its beauty, charm and also that of its perilous threat Yet surprisingly his quest ignites the desire for a rewarding life that is within us all, though sometimes buried It is a gem of a book, that urges you alon [...]

      Kilimanjaro, was a very inspiring good read I received it as a gift through the First Reads promotion by , truly appreciate the book as well as getting to know about new authors Mike s story hit home in a lot of ways, continued to have me pulling for him on his way to the summit.I think anyone would enjoy his story, whether being an outdoor type, or regular city folk Kudos to Mike for his stamina decisions made

      Personal and inspiring The book is written in an incredibly personal way The writer gives insight in his thoughts and feelings while climbing Kili Mr Edwards doesn t shy away from negative experiences and thoughts while on the mountain The route was also described nicely and the pictures definitely added an extra touch To me this book was well worth the read If you are planning to climb Kili this is a book to read to inspire you, to dig deeper and climb higher.

      I will elaborate on this fantastic book after I get some shut eye I read a chapter or two every night I am a busy girl in the A.M I became enraptured by this well written true story I must say.

    10. Heather Fineisen on said:

      I have not climbed Kilimanjaro nor have I written a book so I commend M.G Edwards on his courage to do both His account of his trek up Kili is a bit uneven, as was his actual trek Edwards has his ups and downs and one can take heed to be in good physical and mental condition to embark on such an adventure A good list of resources are available if you are planning your own Kilimanjaro climb Edward s references Hemingway s Snows over Kilmanjaro throughout as he grapples with midlife and career ang [...]

      Did not love this book and would not recommend it, EXCEPT for the part where it included people I know, which is always fun to read about But overall, I did not love the book perhaps mostly because i felt sad for the poor planning that went into their trip, and a little bit because I was not too fond of the writing style, which was a bit repetitive and sometimes whiney which I am not at all fond of when I am reading Kilimanjaro memoirs.

    12. Sandra on said:

      The subject is of interest and I commend the author for his determination, but this is one of the most boring books I have ever read The writing style is so filled with mundane detail and I just found it annoying Not to mention the poor grammar imminently qualified Not an inspiring book on a potentially inspiring subject.
