Availability: Ready to download

Human beings have dreamed of flying ever since they began to walk. A look at history reveals that there are many fables and legends of people trying to fly. There is the story of Icarus who flew too close to the sun, melting the wax that was holding his feathers. He fell into the sea and drowned; but maybe the story would have had a happier ending if Icarus had a parachute Human beings have dreamed of flying ever since they began to walk. A look at history reveals that there are many fables and legends of people trying to fly. There is the story of Icarus who flew too close to the sun, melting the wax that was holding his feathers. He fell into the sea and drowned; but maybe the story would have had a happier ending if Icarus had a parachute… This book will explore skydiving in all its myriad forms. From the history of skydiving, to gear to world records, this record will give you an interesting look at the largely misunderstood world of skydiving. Two Reasons why this book is great 1 – The book is arranged in an alphabetical manner, making it easy to find whatever subject you are looking for. Each chapter is made up of three of four letters of the alphabet, with each letter having one, two or three topics under it. Additionally, after each topic, there is a suggestion to check out a different letter of the alphabet for more information related to the topic being looked at. For example, after reading about “Accidents” you will be referred to the related topic of “Automatic Activation Device”. After reading “Broadwick, Tiny” you will be directed to “P” where you can read about another pioneer female skydiver. 2 – Each topic is filled with unique and lively anecdotes that add some fun into an otherwise life and death topic. Why Skydive? If you are thinking of skydiving then it is either something you have always wanted to do and is probably in your top ten bucket list or you have gone through something challenging in life that has made you want to challenge everything or live life to the fullest. Many people skydive in order to discover the joy of life again. And as will be discussed at the end of this book in the Zen section, Skydiving has the power to do exactly that. Skydiving will not solve your problems, pay off your debts or cure you of a disease or bring back a loved one. However, it does have the effect of changing one’s perception about things. It forces you to leave your baggage for a moment and live in the moment. How to use this book You can read the book alphabetically or you can skip around and pick the topics that are of the greatest interest to you. The topics covered have been chosen in order to cater for all categories of skydivers: the yet-to-skydivers, the new skydivers and even the experienced skydivers.
