    1. A Five Star Amazing ReadA father and son team takes on a challenging and adventurous journey that others might only dream of undertaking. The story is well written and comes from the heart in an honest and sometimes humorous way. Right from the very beginning it is an engaging and fascinating story. About 40,0000 people attempt to reach the summit of Kilimanjaro each year and to be expected not all of the climbers make it. I love the fact that the author has such a generous heart. He and his son [...]


    2. Kilimanjaro is the largest free standing mountain in the world, and one of the "seven summits." When this father and son decided to climb it together, it piqued my interest. I was moderately interested in the backstory, mostly the decisions and plans to climb the mountain. The travel and climb of the mountain itself were the most interesting part of the book. I enjoyed the day by day itinerary and followed their trek on a map (would have been helpful to include one in the story).There was additi [...]


    3. KILIMANJARO AND BEYOND (A Life-Changing Journey) ~ by Barry Finlay with Chris Finlay. REVIEW BY REVEREND DR. LINDA DE COFFA Wonderful, Exhilirating Climb to the Heights! ~I loved this meticulous chronicle of one man’s ascent (together with his son and another individual fulfilling a lifelong aspiration), to the highest mountain in Africa ~ at once so inspirational and courageous, so human and humane, and so deeply personal that the reader feels they are climbing right along with this small and [...]


    4. This is the story of how two ordinary every-day accountants, a father and son team, overcame the odds to climb one of the world’s highest mountains and bring much-needed funds to one of the poorest parts of the world. It is an inspiring account, written primarily by Barry Finlay, who embarked on this challenging escapade at the tender age of 60, and supplemented with dialogue by his son, Chris. The fact that neither is an accomplished writer takes nothing away from the strength of their story. [...]


    5. I am glad that the Finlays didn't just climb Kili and vacate but instead also worked to improve access to clean water and education in Tanzania, but worthy efforts do not make a good book. What a disjointed pile of words.


    6. A seemingly insurmountable climb overcome through a clear mindset of 'one step at a time' and 'one breath at a time.' The chapters towards the end are the most memorable and inspiring for me. Engaging, with a good sense of humour, and pure strength of character.


    7. I really enjoyed the story - Starting out to train like that at his age His sense of humor - the selection of the right company to guide their trip.How Chris and his son showed that they cared about the people - Especially the children of Tanzania.Very satisfying.
