Do not try these bizarre stunts at home

Snakes alive, people get up to some weird stuff! This fast-paced, entertaining, and informative book is packed with stories of extreme human endurance throughout history. It includes tales of amazing escapologist Harry Houdini, arctic explorer Ernest Shackleton, the crew of Apollo 13, the scientists who experimented on themselves for the sake of research, and the people who survived getting lost in the wilderness. This book also contains lots of bizarre information about people who will do anything to get into the record books—having the longest fingernails ever definitely has its drawbacks!
