Absinthe & Flamethrowers
By William Gurstelle
You don't need to live like Evel Knievel to get stimulated, but in small amounts some risk can be life affirming and add inspirational excitement to your existence. Author and engineer William Gurstelle's Absinthe and Flamethrowers: Projects and Ruminations on the Art of Living Dangerously features science facts, history, and a little DIY that invites the reader to engage in projects to get the heart racing. Throw knives, crack a bullwhip, or drink absinthe—Gurstelle advises on how to do these and many other activities, safely, while tiptoeing into thrill seeking. Paperback, 224 pages.
