Insight into the lives of people who work on the edge.

Jobs That Could Kill You is a fascinating collection of candid and intimate conversations with 42 men and women who describe in gripping detail how physical risk is a familiar companion in their working lives, and how they deal with it. In the oral history tradition of Studs Terkel, Jobs That Could Kill You will introduce you to:

  • Antron Brown as he launches his top fuel drag racer from zero to over 300 miles an hour in less than four seconds
  • Justin McBride talking about the guts it takes to stay atop a raging 1,600-pound bull
  • Jeff Gammons as he painfully remembers the terrifying screams of Hurricane Katrina drowning victims
  • Cameron Begbie as he recalls fighting hand-to-hand against insurgents in Fallujah, Iraq
  • Crab fisherman Matt Corriere, who describes the harrowing night when he was the sole survivor after the sinking of the fishing vessel Massacre Bay in icy Alaskan waters
  • And dozens more!

Jobs That Could Kill You reveals who these daring people are, what they will endure for a paycheck, and how they feel about their jobs. They speak for themselves, in their own words.
