Daredevil Dads chronicles the lives of a group of men who do some of the most dangerous jobs on (and off) the planet – and in some instances even below the earth’s surface. Every day they walk out the door, they know it might be their last as they push themselves to the edge of their limits. The price to be paid if things go wrong is greater than just their own life as all have raised or are raising children and know very well the risks they take. 

Volume I showcases lesser known jobs like Smoke Jumping as well as better-known professions such as Astronaut and Paratrooper. It also delves heavily into the world of extreme sports with big wave surfing and stunt bike mega stars who are chasing the shadow of the godfather, Evel Knievel. You’ll find tales of jumps over giant canyons, discover the sound a great white shark makes as it circles its prey, and learn about a bomb disposal expert who’s more scared of the dentist’s chair than stepping on a land mine!

Volume II focuses on several men who have become world champions in their field. It teaches us about the perils of flying fighter jets, about what it’s like to be buried alive by an avalanche, and how salvage divers cope in the most extreme ocean environments on the planet. You’ll also learn why some of these men quit their jobs after losing count of friends and colleagues who died along the way.

There are books in which men speak candidly about the thrills, spills and broken bones of life in and out of the red zone, as well as sharing their tales of epic parenting mishaps that will bring a smile to your face. They also show how some of us might just be born with a predisposition for dangerous activities that isn’t readily explainable.

Australian born Tam Rodwell resides in London with his wife and family, two pairs of jeans and 26 white T-shirts. When he isn’t writing he enjoys surfing any chance he gets.
