Projects and Ruminations on the Art of Living Dangerously

By William Gurstelle

Want to add more excitement to your life?

This daring combination of science, history, and DIY projects will show you how. Written for smart risk takers, it explores why danger is good for you and details the art of living dangerously.

All of the projects have short learning curves, are hands-on and affordable, and demonstrate true but reasonable risk.

Unlike watching an action movie or playing a video game, real-life experience changes a person, and author William Gurstelle will help you discover the true thrill of making black powder, throwing knives, drinking absinthe, and cracking a bullwhip.

With a strong emphasis on safety, each potentially life-altering project includes step-by-step directions, photographs, and illustrations along with troubleshooting tips from experts in the field.
