Insights as to what happens to the body in extreme situations. Told in a short story format--with scientific detail applied to each story.

Last Breath, told from the perspective of the first person in extreme physiologically stressful situations (hypothermia, dehydration, etc.) is incredibly engaging: it puts you smack in the middle of the plight of the dying person. Psychologically and physiologically, this is wild stuff that reminds you how awful and terrifying in some cases, and how peaceful in others, it might be to die while participating in the outdoor activities we love the most.

One of my favorite books - ever.

Okay, maybe this is engaging and educational, but it gave me the creeps. How many ways can you kick the bucket in slow motion?
