Extreme Sports is the first book ever to catalogue and describe the mad, mad world of extreme or adrenalin sports. Opinions vary about which sports are worthy of the accolade "extreme", but in this book a lack of rules and a surplus of danger are deemed to be enough to earn a sport its place. Whitewater rafting, B.A.S.E. jumping, cliff diving, sledding, snowboarding, surfing, sky flying and rock climbing will all be covered, plus a host of other sports activities that would have any self-respecting life insurance salesperson rushing to up your premium. The book is divided into three main categories depending on the type of terrain the sport utilizes - air, land or water. The different levels of interest in the various sports in the book are reflected in the coverage. Each sport opens with a double-page action shot and a brief introduction. The higher-profile sports will receive up to eight pages, covering advice on clothing and equipment, all the trick manoeuvres, the classic venues and safety tips and hints. Other sports where participation is growing rapidly, receive more than adequate coverage as well.

Extreme sports vigorously test the limits of an individual's strength, agility. Adult/High School–If the words "extreme sports" bring to mind only the basics like skateboarding and snowboarding, think again. Here, sports range all the way to "mega-extreme" sports such as sky flying, caving, and free-diving. The book is divided into categories of air, land, and water, each of which profiles a variety of sports from the everyday to the almost totally unfamiliar. Each entry ranges from 2 to 10 pages and recounts the history of the sport as well as some of the greats who have competed. When appropriate, hints are given for how to participate locally.

Action sports, adventure sports or extreme sports are activities perceived as involving a high degree of risk. These activities often involve speed, height, a high level of physical exertion and highly specialized gear. The definition of extreme sports is not exact and the origin of the terms is unclear, but it gained popularity in the 1990s when it was picked up by marketing companies to promote the X Games and when the Extreme Sports Channel and the Extreme Sports Company launched.
