This has got to be one of my favourite books ever. It's very short, but it's the only book I can remember that literally made my heart beat faster as I was reading. Surprisingly, Jakeman is a good writer and he conveys the darker side of his obsession with great skill. His forays into Zen philosophy could have been heavy-handed but instead they are handled with eloquence and economy. Although Jakeman seems to invoke artistic licence for some of the narrative (rival groups of BASE jumpers bumping into each other at the foot of the Barbican Centre, for example), he pulls no punches in describing the often brutal outcome of his sport. The result is a visceral, spine-tingling and extremely engaging book. The only surprise is that he doesn't seem to have written anything since. Er...

GROUNDRUSH
BASE jumping - an acronym for Building, Antenna (TV/radio masts), Spans (bridges), Earth (cliffs), is one of the fastest growing sports around.
Simon Jakeman and his colleagues head for Cheddar in Somerset, and there they jump from a 360ft glistening limestone cliff into the awaiting gorge below... then tragedy strikes.....
Jakeman luckily escapes unscathed from his freefall descent, only to find that word has travelled fast and he finds himself "blacklisted" from various airfields. Nevertheless undeterred he continues BASE jumping this time from a 1000 foot TV mast, and later tower blocks in London. Plenty of suspense, comedy and tragedy are played out far below the recommended 2000ft parachuting rulebook allowance!
Jakeman's own Kamakura-Zen philiosophy captures the very essense of life and individualism. His ethics and self-regulating professionalism are to be admired. A true message of living for the "now". A true spirit of the air, seeking to free himself from the norm, if only for a few seconds!
An excellent piece of work, a book for the individualist, complete with tales of fear and bravery. Definately needs reprinting. Get a copy if you can. You wont regret it.
