About the AuthorThe Book of the Week. Even the most eager historians will find their knowledge challenged by this new book about the capital.' (Evening Standard) 'It's a book I think everyone should have.' (Robert Elms, BBC Radio London) 'The best possible start for anyone who wishes to get off the beaten track and under the skin of the hidden city that is modern-day London.' (Guardian) 'David Long's intriguing alphabetical survey - an attempt to impose order on chaos - lists hundreds of little courtyards and alleys, many almost forgotten among the banks and businesses.' (FT) 'This admirably structured and coherent book draws attention to the uncontrived diversity in London's architecture.' (Maxwell Hutchinson, President RIBA) 'The photographs are enigmatically stark, the text rich in anecdotes. Long brings a genuine pleasure to his subject and encourages his readers to look at London with an unceasing curiosity.' (The London Magazine) 'A quirkier look at the subject...plenty of new places here for even the most knowledgeable Londoner to explore.' (Museum of London) 'Quite an incredible wealth of endorsement at the highest level should be given to David Long's new book'. (BBC Radio London) 'David Long tells the story of how a humble transport system rapidly became one of the city's greatest icons.' (The Spectator)

Book DescriptionShortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Awards 2017 Beautifully presented in a large, hardback format, and fully illustrated in colour throughout, this wonderful anthology is a treat for all the family. Be shocked and amazed by these incredible real-life stories of extreme survival, including... The Man Who Sucked Blood from a Shark, a sailor who survived for 133 days on a raft in the Atlantic when his ship was torpedoed, using shark's blood in place of fresh water. The Girl Who Fell From the Sky, a teenager who fell 2 miles from an aeroplane and trekked through the Amazon jungle to safety. The Woman Who Froze to Death - Yet Lived, a woman who was trapped under freezing water for so long her heart stopped. Four hours later, medics managed to warm her blood enough to revive her. Combining classic tales such as Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic voyage, as well as more modern exploits such as the adventurer who inspired the movie 127 Hours, these astonishing stories will be retold by young readers to all of their friends.

Editorial ReviewA gorgeously presented hardback book, full of incredible real-life stories of extreme survival . . . Ultimately an inspirational book, beautifully illustrated (Angels and Urchins) A wonderful mixture of the scariness of peril and the glorious uplift of survival. It's insightful, inspirational and all absolutely true . . . If you're looking for a present for a child, or even for an adult searching for an introduction to the subject then this is the sort of book which you look at and are rather surprised that the cover price is not a lot higher. (Bookbag) True-story fans will love this. (Inis Children's Books Ireland)
