Extreme Encounters : How it Feels to be Drowned in Quicksand, Shredded by Piranhas, Swept Up in a Tornado and Dozens of Other Unpleasant Experiences Paperback
After reading The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook (more than 3 million copies sold worldwide), did you ever wonder what it feels like to be attacked by a great white shark? Or how it feels to be launched into space? Or what it's like to contract Mad Cow Disease? Extreme Encounters describes these scenarios and 37 more calamitous encounters with endlessly addictive "you-are-there" second-person narratives - so you chill to the numbing effects of frostbite, you hear the 110-decibel roar of a grizzly bear, and you feel the stomach-lurching drop of an elevator freefall.
This is no survival guide - it's a moment-by-moment, blow-by-blow account of what is happening to you physically, emotionally, and scientifically.
Armchair adventurers can learn what it feels like to go right to the edge - and to be able to return.
It's The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook meets Into Thin Air.
