Danger: Our Love of Living on the Edge by Michael Apter

Why do we slow down to look at car accidents? Why would rich people shoplift? What draws people to parachuting, military service, and sadistic sex? These are just some of the questions this book unravels in its investigation of our paradoxical liking of danger.
