A book about Paul Preuss? One of the predecessors of modern free climbing and alpinism? How did I miss that one? The Mauerhakenstreit (The Piton Dispute) is still one very nice discussion on climbing style

Are the brief descriptions of each book quotes from the dustcover or from the shortlisting panel?
