Michael Bane, a self-confessed couch potato, decided to push himself to the limit by making a list of 13 of the world's most dangerous athletic pursuits, and then doing them. Included in his list were a Death Valley marathon and an "Escape from Alcatraz" triathlon.

Review:

Everyone makes lists, but the baker's dozen of personal challenges that Michael Bane came up with to test the breaking points of body and soul are literally breathtaking. The adventures he exuberantly narrates are the extreme of the extreme, like swimming from Alcatraz Island, running through Death Valley, bicycling the Rocky Mountains, and climbing Mt. Denali. Along the route of his audacious odyssey, he meets his share of fascinating fellow extremists, one of whom describes the author as a kind of "George Plimpton from Hell," an apt depiction, to be sure, of man intent on journeying to a daringly engaging version of hell and back.
