If there was a category above 5 stars I would give this more. I just loved this book. The author is a stunt pilot. The book gives insight into why we push ourselves to the extreme. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743257901, Paperback)

In a good year aerobatics is one of the most beautiful sports imaginable. Pilots pull through impossibly elegant figures at hundreds of miles an hour. In a bad year no sport kills more of its participants. To fly really well and to win you must depart the land of the possible and enter a place of pure faith. In this stunning literary debut, Joshua Cooper Ramo has crafted a meditation on the seduction of flight and a passionate love letter to a life of risk.
