Left Foot Right Foot is a journey from the seat of a wheelchair to the summit of the highest mountain on earth. A simple mistake at an indoor climbing gym sentenced Robby to a year in a wheelchair and put an abrupt halt to his dreams and ambitions as a mountaineer and shattered the aspirations of a regular 28 year old. This story is more than a biography or just another mountaineering expedition account, it's a journey into hell time and time again, in an awe inspiring effort to chase the ultimate dream and rebuild a life worth living for.

A brutally honest account of a man's journey into hell after shattering both ankles, and the inspiring story of how a shift in mindset saw him summiting the highest peak on earth. Robby's ability to take you on his journey, in his own words, is simply remarkable. I found myself laughing aloud at Robby's descriptions of some of his funnier experiences and then blinking away the sting in my eyes at some of his lowest moments.
I came to realise that my own mountains are more easily conquered by ensuring that I take one step at a time on the journey – "Left Foot, Right Foot".
The short chapters, easy reading and a desire to see Robby succeed on his personal odyssey, makes this book unputdownable and truly inspiring.. Posted on 4/20/2017
I enjoyed the book from the beginning, it is informative, entertaining and inspiring, it gives a glimpse into what life is like, when you are involved in extreme mountaineering. Well worth the read. . Posted on 4/19/2017
Loved the read! I thought I'd bought a book to last an 8 day trip away... and finished it in a day and a half.
Thanks for the share Robby!
