This is an unlikely book for me to read except that my rock-climbing daughter enthusiastically pressed it on me after she finished it and said "you need to read this book next." She was insistent enough that I did!

Although I am not a rock-climber or a base jumper and never will be (!), Steph Davis's story kept me interested. She is a world-renowned climber, skydiver, and base jumper and her rebound from a failed marriage and a crashing career comprises this story. She goes from climbing up vertical cliffs with no ropes or backup to jumping off them in flight back to ground. Quite a story from an intelligent writer who dropped out of law school to embrace a career of climbing and jumping.
