Synopsis

"Base 66" is the true, nerve-wracking account of three young skydivers and their quest for membership in the most select extreme sports club on earth: The Base club. In order to become a full-fledged member, Jevto Dedijer, Bernard Poirier, and Scott Elder had to parachute from the top of a building, an antenna tower, a bridge and a cliff, and survive to tell the story - a feat only some 800 adrenaline addicted people have succeeded in doing. In "Base 66", Jevto Dedijer tells the tale of his hunger for the ultimate adrenaline rush. He and his companions shared several near death experiences while traveling across Europe with their parachutes and beer in Bernard's dented Renault 4. They were pioneers in a sport so dangerous that several of their fellow Base jumpers died in action. ""Base 66" is a fascinating story about life and death, terror and joy, and intimate friendship. It is an account of extraordinary people taking a step beyond the edge." - Yuri Kuznetsov of Base 416. "Everyone will enjoy reading Jevto's thrilling and humorous tale of his fascinating "Base" odyssey and his discovery of a way of life that surpasses artificial boundaries and provides lifelong inspiration."

- Jean Boenish of Base 3.

What base, adventure and life are all about! 12. April 2005
Von Jaap Suter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
As a base-jumper myself, I can highly recommend this book! Not just if you're a base-jumper, but also if you love reading about the adventures of other people. This book not only manages to capture the thrill and excitement of base-jumping (and in those days it was many times more exciting), but it also shows how ultimately the most important part is sharing these experiences with great friends. If you're a couch-potato, start by reading this book and then go outside, meet people, and go on adventures!

'The whole world is jumpable!' 27. Mai 2005
Von Robert Price - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book brought back fond memories of what it was like BASE jumping in the '80's, when we weren't even sure 'what' was possible. The fear of death, the fear of injury, the fear of getting caught. I remember my girlfriend's comment when I called to tell her I had just completed my first building jump and qualified for BASE -- "Good, you don't have to do any more jumps now." "NOT!" BASE 66 brought all that back and more. A great book for any adventurer.

Throw yourself off a cliff! 20. Dezember 2004
Von Gustaf Wachtmeister - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This white-knuckle read is a must for anyone wanting to learn how to live life to the full - and still be around to tell the tale. Jevto Dedijer writes about his daring exploits in a way which made me gasp, feeling as if I myself stood on the brink of a cliff or a tower with nothing but a tiny chute to hang my life on. He puts you right into those chutestraps, creating that chilly sinking feeling in your belly and a small thought of envy - I wish I had had the guts to what he did. Read it!

This is a great book! 14. Dezember 2004
Von Robert R. Frackelton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is terrific. I enjoyed it from cover to cover. After reading so much fiction, it is refreshing to read some non-fiction that is even more gripping than a typical novel! I highly recommend this book to anyone who has the capability to read. Excellent story!!

Everyone should have a friend like Cloudia 4. Januar 2005
Von Jean Francois Brousseau - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Base 66 is a great and entertaining story about the golden age of BASE jumping. These guys were crazy (or idiots as they called themselves) just like space pioneers. Always pushing the envelope to the limits... and were lucky enough to lived to tell about it.
