Editorial Reviews

Review

“By evoking his youthful passion for the World Trade Center, Petit brings the towers’ awesomeness back to life.”
—SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

“Every time I watch Philippe Petit perform, my heart beats a mile a minute, and I wonder, ‘What is going through his mind and heart up there?’ Now I know. This book is as awe-inspiring as his accomplishments on the wire.”
—MILOŠ FORMAN

“Philippe Petit is an artist whose theater is the sky. In this absorbing book, he reveals himself to be equal parts Houdini, Nureyev, and da Vinci.”
—ROBIN WILLIAMS

“How good to remember that morning in 1974 when a young man gave New York a gift of astonishing, indelible beauty. How good that he has sat down now to give us this lively and often heart-stopping account of how he achieved his masterpiece.”
—PAUL AUSTER

“It was Philippe Petit who connected the twin towers of the World Trade Center, in an act of beauty and ecstasy. Now that an act of terror has destroyed them both, his book resurrects and reunites them, in sheer defiance of gravity.”
—WERNER HERZOG

About the Author

Philippe Petit is the world’s most famous high-wire performer, making more than eighty high-wire walks around the world. He also street-juggles, lectures, and practices close-up magic. He is the subject of the award-winning documentary film Man on Wire. When he’s not traveling, Philippe shares his time between The Cathedral St. John the Divine in New York City and a small hideaway in the Catskills.
