Summary

Incredible Stunts is like Fear Factor on steroids. Famed action photographer and photojournalist Jeffery R. Werner has assembled an amazing collection of images from his exclusive archive of photos taken over the past two decades of daredevils and stuntmen pushing themselves to the limit. This is the first full-length, extensive photo book of stunts, extreme sports, and daredevil mayhem created for both kids and adults alike. Daredevils inhabit an adrenaline-drenched world where motorcycles fly, people dive through flaming infernos, airplanes hug the ground, and bodies are shattered more often than records. New faces come and go so fast that the only "regulars" are the paramedics who pick up the pieces. Daredevils are an extreme form of stuntmen who, like Evel Knievel, do increasingly dangerous stunts, searching for that elusive combination of fame, fortune, and glory.
