Shit, that was close! A life in near misses by Philip Blake | PB
Unputdownable...a book about near misses – 77 of them – enjoyed or endured by its author Philip Blake.
I laughed all the way through it. ~Ann Hughes, Tasmanian editor and the first person to read the whole manuscript.
Terrorists, bicycles, electricity, logging machinery, motor-bikes, rally cars, gravity and wild animals are just a few of the players in a series of little dramas that have given the author opportunities to meet his Maker – which, at the time of publication, he has yet to do.
Warning ... You have had moments of your own when you might equally well have gasped ‘Shit, that was close!’ This book will get you thinking about them – and will remind you that even if you didn’t utter the magic words, maybe you should have.
(Just don’t write a competing book right away.)
