Information
First edition, third impression hardback of INTO DANGER Risking Your Life for Work, by Kate Adie and published by Hodder & Stoughton, London, 2008. Signed by Adie on the title page.

The book is in very good condition (Clean purple cloth boards with silver lettering on the spine) with only minor shelf wear to the dust jacket, which is price clipped (minor creasing to a small part of the spine edge but nothing too drastic). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions.

"Bestselling author and the most famous woman in a flak jacket Kate Adie sets out on a fascinating journey to discover just who is attracted to living dangerously - and why.

Ever since her days as a reporter on the front line in Iraq, Kate Adie has earned her reputation as one of the most intrepid women of her day. Throughout her career she has regularly reported from the world`s most dangerous war zones - often placing her own life at serious risk.

It has given her a curiosity about the people who are attracted to danger. Why when so many are fearful of anything beyond their daily routine, are others drawn towards situations, or professions which put them in regular peril of their lives?

It has proved a fascinating quest that has taken her to the four corners of the globe in pursuit of an answer. She has met those who choose a career in danger, like stuntpeople, landmine exploders, and even a `snake man` who - aged 96 - has been bitten countless times by poisonous snakes to find venom for vaccines. She has questioned those whose actions put them in danger, like Sir Richard Leakey whose determination to speak out in Kenya nearly cost him his life, as well as criminals and prostitutes who risk all for money. And of course there are those who - through no choice of their own - have been put in danger, such as Saddam Hussein`s food taster - not his career of choice.

With Kate`s insight, wit, and gift for illumination, this is a compelling read."

309 pages. Illustrated with black & white and colour photographs.
