Format: Paperback
This book is amazingly well written, a complex analisys of what people practising sports implying gravity are looking for. The mastering and control, the enjoyment of vertigo: the author explains it all going very deep in the minds of the ones he studied. Wonderful!
NOTE: this book is "Falling" of the same author only with a different (less beutiful) title.
