Phillipe Petit, the man this book is about, once said, “The wirewalker of great heights is a dreamer. He stretches out on his cable and contemplates the sky. There he gathers his strength, recovers the serenity he may have lost, regains his courage and his faith.” Gernstein manages to share that dream, strength, and serenity with those of us who may never dance in the sky a quarter mile above the ground.
