Overview

Join the legendary acrobat and performer Philippe Petit on a highly personal journey across the high-wire in his latest book, Cheating the Impossible: Ideas and Recipes from a Rebellious High-Wire Artist. Petit�s �recipes� will guide you through deep challenges to the personal and professional rewards that wait on the other side. In the form of a narrative that uses Petit�s life as a roadmap, Cheating the Impossible presents �patience and tenacity� as key ingredients to overcoming obstacles. Petit - who walked on a high wire between the World Trade Center towers in 1974 - reminds us that struggle is a valuable tool that has been replaced by crash courses and shortcuts. To cheat the impossible and escape the human condition one must always leave an action � either large or small�victoriously.
