After reading The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook, did you ever wonder what it’s like to be struck by lightning? To run with the bulls in Pamplona? To ride the crushing swell of an avalanche? Extreme Encounters describes these adventures and 37 others 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. Extreme Encounters is a moment-by-moment, blow-by-blow account of what happens to you physically, emotionally, and scientifically during life’s most perilous experiences. Like a cross between The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook and Into Thin Air, these heart-racing stories take readers where few have gone before. Download and start listening now!

    " First of all, I read this book because I am a HUGE Ohio State Buckeyes fan. Secondly, it was a great read if you are a Buckeye or Michigan fan. It tells all about the history of "College Football's Greatest Rivalry." "
