In the book which the American Bar Association’s Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section sponsored, the author tells of 16 riveting cases surrounding extreme activities such as mountain biking, water skiing, snowboarding, bungee jumping, car racing, skydiving from recreational to extreme, and reveals how real-life adventures can take a turn for the unexpected.
