Danny MacAskill is legendary for his YouTube viral videos like The Ridge, Cascadia, and Imaginate: nerve-racking montages of stunts which scale mountain peaks, rooftops, ghost towns, and movie sets. His life is one of thrills, bloody spills, and millions of online hits. It hasn't been an easy ride. Doubt, stress, and the "what if?" factor circle every trailblazing trick, which require imagination, fearlessness, groundbreaking techniques, and an eye for a good camera angle. In this unflinching memoir of mayhem, Danny shares his anarchic childhood on the Isle of Skye and early days as a street trials rider, takes us behind the scenes of his training and videos, shares never-seen-before sketches from his personal notebook, and reveals what it takes to go the next level—both mentally and physically. Join Danny for a nerve-shredding ride. Just be sure to bring a crash helmet.
