Little did I know that was nowhere near how high she has jumped from before. Try a 110 stories!
The great thing about this book is Angela lays out with her personal feelings included, how anyone who is interested in this line of work (And has some basic skills and a willingness to broaden them), can be a success at it.
The gear you'll need, how and where to meet people in the business and most importantly, how and where you can go to get the training you will need to broaden your chances of success, even down to your resume's, marketing yourself, portfolios and really, leaves no stone unturned.
On a personal note, I met Angela when I was younger and I knew she was star material even then. I had no idea years later that I'd watched her without knowing it in so many of the movies I'd seen.
Anyway, when I was younger my idea of a stunt person was Evel Knievel, perhaps that's because the "Greats" that perform the actual stunts are really not seen. This provides a behind the scenes look at what stunt people do (And what she's done which will amaze you) that I was totally unaware of and although it's a dangerous profession, she spells out all the precautions that need to be taken as well as if it's beyond your skill set, how you have to be honest about that.
In today's world of extreme sports and the things I see on line that I don't want my kids to see, for fear of them trying it, I think this book should be in all the libraries across the country, High Schools and colleges so those that have that "Thrill Seeking" mind set can learn from one of the best how do the incredible, safely or as safely as possible.
Kudos to you Angela!
Wonderfully written book, incredible life you have led and I too expect to see you starring as an "Action Hero" in front" of the cameras for all to see very soon!

AND! Angela is such a beautiful example of a life on a road less traveled. I also love this book because it gives women the opportunity to broaden their horizons of what is possible in life because we get to read about a truly unusual life. Kudos Angela!!! Thanks for being you and then writing about it!
