Five star rated guide book on the 2 week, 100 mile walk from Chamonix to Zermatt across 11 passes, ascent of 39,000 vertical feet and descent of 36,000 vertical feet.
You won't require another book or map although I think another topographical map would be handy.
While the writer is dismissive about short cuts walkers take, don't worry - many do take cable car lifts and buses.
This book is the real thing with detailed descriptions of junctions, routes, huts, cols, crevasses, but mind, the author is an experienced outdoorsman and while he may take 6 hours to make a day's journey, for most of us, this could be 9 hours.
An excellent book to help you plan your trip and a slim size to easily store in the pack.
