Review By: Shana
This book has some good tidbits and interesting facts about fear and thrill seeking behavior. However, to get to the intermittent pieces of quality writing you have to wade through a lot of self-indulgent and flighty narrative
The author seems markedly frivolous for someone with an advanced degree in sociology. I would love a book more robust in science and less peppered with decidedly shallow introspection and superficial vignettes from the author's life and why she thinks she enjoys being scared and thrilled. Luckily, the book was short so I didn't waste too much time.
My love of reading was sparked in 3rd grade by the promise of personal pan pizzas via the BOOK IT! Program. Hmmmm... any chance that someone might give adults free food for reading? Asking for a friend...
