The list author says: "There aren't many lists as diverse as this one - all of these authors went the extra mile in exploring their chosen fields - whether that was slugging out endless miles in Ultramarathon Man, dressing as a man in Self-Made Man, or infiltrating the mob in Covert. In life, we'll never be able to experience everything, but at least we can come close when we pick up one of these books!"
