If you've ever dreamed of jumping into skydiving, this is the book for you. As the author relates,"I remember I screamed, 'ONE THOUSAND, TWO THOUSAND, THREE THOUSAND. . .,' my heart jumping out of my chest, and then there was a sharp report, a thwack as the static line extracted the billowing white canopy. You can't get much more primal than an instant like this. Opening shock, it's called. You're relieved because you've just experienced the welcome pleasure of the violent jerk. Then a release, like waking from a dream and realizing that all those previous thoughts, the story you had written in your mind was completely a fiction. . . . This was a feeling that was better than sex, and it was potentially addictive. I was soon to enter this blissful dungeon for a very long stay, about to experience how habit-forming skydiving could become. I had to repeat the fix. I just opened my psyche and let it happen."
