Description
The compelling story of a man pushing his body and mind to the limit

One day a few years ago, Michael Bane put down his remote control and picked up a whole new way of living that involved dying almost every day. He entered the world of extreme sports -- kayaking off waterfalls, diving in underwater caves, marathoning in Death Valley -- and has never looked back. Over the Edge is the gripping tale of his adventures tackling 13 risky sports, detailing the physical and mental preparation, the participation in these punishing yet exhilarating endeavors, and the arrival at the realization that this climb, flight, or dive might be his last. But he's survived so far to tell his tale and it's an engrossing read. It's not a guide book, a sourcebook, or a how-to. It's an everyman's journey to the edge and back.
