'The Boulder - A Philosophy for Bouldering' by Francis Sanzaro

Just published and now available! The new publication from Stone Country - 'The Boulder: A Philosophy for Bouldering' by US climber and philosopher Francis Sanzaro - is a paperback edition of 192 pages, with photographs, and features a foreword by none other than John Gill, perhaps the original guru of proper bouldering... 


Here is how he endorses the importance of this book:

"Finding a climber who perceives bouldering as a moving meditation, or one who values form and style far beyond difficulty, is a daunting task . . . bouldering needs its own analytical literature. In this book, Francis Sanzaro takes a significant step in that direction."

To read more about the book and the author, visit the Stone Country website where there is a preview of the book and an interview with the author.

Sounds great. Are there plans for an e-book version?

yes, there will be an e-book available, most likely in early 2014. The book is available in paperback only until then,
