An entrepreneur and a movie executive, both in their 50s, have the same dream--to climb the highest peak on each of the world's continents. Not only has no one ever climbed all seven summits, but these two men aren't even mountaineers. Together, however, Dick Bass and Frank Wells put the project together, with the help of seasoned guides and patient teachers, to say nothing of supportive spouses. Jonathan Marosz presents the narrative in documentary fashion, with crisp elocution and little variation in tone or pace. He reads the dialogue as narrative, with no attempt at characterization, which would ruin the tone and flow of the story. As presented, SEVEN SUMMITS captures the listener's attention and holds it firmly. The story needs no embellishment, and Marosz gives it none. R.P.L.
