First Edition pp. xxiii, 234 Illustrated #261015 (Mike Towers experienced psychological trauma as a result of his experiences in Vietnam but has deliberately led an active adventurous life to overcome this--what he describes as 'adrenalin-seeking hobbies' such as scuba diving and giving the occasional shark a friendly pat.)
