    DescriptionWhat do skydiving, rock climbing, and downhill skiing have in common with stock trading, vandalism, unprotected sex and sadomasochism? All are high risk pursuits. This book will introduce the reader to the world of voluntary risk-taking, investigating the seductive nature of pursuing peril and teasing our boundaries between legal and criminal behavior, conscious and unconscious acts, sanity and insanity, and acceptable risk and stupidity.
