Imagine Yourself
Climbing Mount Everest

A true story, warts and all, of what really happened to ad exec and amateur climber Kevin Flynn during his days at the top of the world. In this riveting, entertaining adventure, Flynn takes the reader along for the ride through each stage of his expedition, step by precarious step, from base camp to summit and back again.

In May 2004, Kevin Flynn reached the summit of Mt. Everest—but not without tears, laughter, failures, near-death experiences and great friendships. If you've ever wondered what it would be like for a mere mortal to attempt Mt. Everest, this book is as close as it gets.

Grab this book and take the journey for yourself.
Itís like being there yourself—without all that pesky danger.



Kevin recently appeared on WROC-TV, Rochester's local CBS affiliate and RNEWS, Rochester's cable news, to discuss his latest mountain climbing adventure. After reaching the top of Everest in May, 2004, Kevin continued his journey to reach the top of the highest peaks on each continent. He recently achieved this goal by scaling to the top of the Carstensz Pyramid in Indonesia. Now, Kevin is a member of an elite group of only about 90 people (30 Americans) in the world to ever achieve this feat.

By reaching the 7,310 foot top of Kosciuszko in Australia on November 7, 2006 at 12:30PM, Kevin Flynn became part of a very exclusive club: those who have reached the summit of the highest peak on each of the seven continents.

For Kevin, this completes an epic 14-year journey covering over 90,000 miles and 130,000 vertical feetĖand thatís just on the way up!

"I've climbed with Flynn on Everest and Elbrus and he understands that there's a lot more to mountaineering than just getting to the summit. I think this book will help the reader understand the joy and pain that accompanies every climber on a big mountain climb. Flynn gets it."
