192 pages. Covers have light creasing. Edges of covers have superficial wear. Spine is uncreased. Pages are clean and unmarked and in excellent condition. This reference guide catalogues and describes the mad, mad world of extreme adrenalin sports. Opinions vary about which sports are worthy of the accolade "extreme", but in this book a lack of rules and a surplus of danger are deemed to be enough to earn a sport its place. Whitewater rafting, abseiling, bungee jumping, snowboarding, surfing, paragliding and rock climbing are covered, plus a host of other sports. The book is divided into three main categories depending on the type of terrain the sport utilizes: air, land and water. The different levels of interest in the various sports in the book is reflected in the coverage. Each sport opens with a double-page action shot, a brief introduction to the activity and a celebrity quote. The higher profile sports receive up to eight pages, covering advice on clothing and equipment, all the trick manoeuvres, the classic venues and safety tips and hints. Other sports where participation is growing rapidly receive at least four pages, and newer sports, together with those of minority interest are allocated two pages. Quantity Available: 1.
