Extreme Encounters offers blow-by-blow accounts of life's most dangerous experiences in thrilling "you-are-there" second person - so you chill to the numbing effects of frostbite, you hear the ear-splitting roar of a tornado, and you feel the stomach-lurching drop of an elevator freefall. Full of harrowing adventure and surprising scientific insights, Extreme Encounters is a journey you'll never forget.
Extreme Encounters is also available in print from Quirk Books.
There's a lot of encounters packed into this audio book. Most of them are shorter than 8 minutes in length. The down side is that nothing is explained in massive detail, but the upshot is that you get the point and are able to cover more ground.
The reading wasn't too bad, and overall I enjoyed listening to it. I caught myself squirming in my seat a few times.

Could this concept have been really interesting if written by another author? Until that happens we won't know. Skip this one.
