Recommended for: The fearless

Riding the trains sometimes you see people who you imagine may or may not call the tubes their home. This book gets down, in harsh detail, where humans are willing to go, or moreover what they will let slide. I'm sure Everyman has wondered what would happen if the tightrope snapped, if the floor fell from below.. this book shines a light on that existence. I read this in about five days of subway rides, and simply what the author was willing to put herself through was enough for me to tip my hat. I used to think there were two New Yorks, the extremely rich, and the rest of us. There are three New Yorks, and I'm contented to exist in the middle.
