Poor English translation: 

Now, the cameraman thousands of Eight ', the film equipment on the keyboard exchanged. Sein knapp 400 Seiten starkes Buch Aufbruch ins Ungewisse ist dabei eine Art „Best Of life“ und somit gleichermaßen ideal für Diemberger-Neueinsteiger wie auch für langjährige Diemberger-Fans. His nearly 400-page book breakthrough into the unknown is a kind of 'Best Of life' and therefore equally ideal for Diemberger - newcomers as well as long-Diemberger fans. Denn selbst wenn die Abenteuer an Broad Peak, Dhaulagiri und K2 schon dem ein oder anderen bekannt vorkommen dürften, so warten dennoch eine Reihe von unbekannteren Trips -- zur Riesenschaumrolle an der Königsspitze, ins Shaksgamtal auf der geheimnisvollen Seite des Karakorum und zur Ama Pujung. Even if the adventures of Broad Peak, Dhaulagiri and K2 have one or the other should be known to occur, so wait still a number of known trips -- to the giant foam role in the king's head, into Shaksgamtal on the mysterious side of the Karakorum and Ama Pujung. Die Bergtour mit dem großen Hermann Buhl ist zwar nicht unbekannt, dafür aber Diembergers Sicht seines Todes. The mountain tour with the great Hermann Buhl is not unknown, but Diembergers view of his death. Nicht minder spannend lesen sich die erschütternden Einzelheiten des Überlebenskampfes am K2, den Diemberger nur knapp gewinnt. No less exciting read the shocking details of the struggle for survival on K2, the Diemberger barely wins.

Doch in Diembergers Lesereise durch sein Abenteuerleben geht es nicht nur um Berge, selbst wenn die Coverfotos von Eisbart und Schneegipfel dies nahe legen. But in Diembergers reading tour through his adventurous life is not only about mountains, even if the cover photos of Eisbart and Snow Summit this suggests. Er macht sich auch zu anderen Ufern auf, nämlich in die tropischen Regenwälder Südamerikas. He is also to other banks, namely in the tropical rain forests of South America. Der Amazonas-Ausflug füllt jedoch nur eine von 18 Episoden, weshalb niemand auf die Idee kommen dürfte, Diemberger einen Amazonisten statt einen Alpinisten zu nennen. The Amazon trip fills only one of the 18 episodes, which is why no one on the idea should come, Diemberger a Amazonisten instead of a call to mountaineers. Hans Kammerlander erst recht nicht.

Kurt Diemberger (born 1932 in Austria), is the only remaining person alive that has made the first ascents on two mountains over 8,000 metres. In 1957, he made the first ascent of Broad Peak and in 1960, the first ascent of Dhaulagiri. Diemberger was also the last person to see Hermann Buhl alive before he fell through a cornice on Chogolisa. Diemberger was one of only two survivors in the 1986 K2 Disaster.

On August 4, 1986, Diemberger and Julie Tullis reached the summit of K2 very late in the day. Shortly after starting their descent, Julie fell -- dragging Diemberger with her. Fortunately, they somehow stopped from going over the edge and spent the night above 8,000 metres. They managed to reach Camp IV the next day, where they were forced to share a tent with six other climbers after their tent had collapsed from hurricane force winds. Unfortunately, Julie died later that night, possibly from HACE, and only one other of climbers survived the descent with Diemberger. Diemberger is still active in the mountaineering world and works on film projects with his daughter.
