"On 15 May 2006 double amputee Mark Inglis fulfilled a childhood ambition: to stand on the summit of the highest mountain in the world. Legs on Everest follows Mark's preparation for the Everest attempt, including climbing Cho Oyu in the Himalayas, and the built-up to the summit push. It shows that reaching the top of Everest is only half the journey - you have to get back down alive.

Here at last is the full story of Mark's Everest expedition - a story of determination, pain, controversy and overcoming seemingly impossible obstacles, both physical and psychological. It's full of gripping detail, providing a fascinating insight into the world of extreme mountaineering straight from the heart of one of New Zealand's most incredible personalities. It's also humorous, deeply moving, enlightening and entertaining."
