Product description


"RISK! will move you to live fiercely and share your wildest truths!"
--John Hodgman, actor, humorist, and New York Times bestselling author of Vacationland

"RISK! gives a platform to stories rarely heard, to people rarely represented and their most insane experiences. This book pushes us to live lives that inspire stories like these, to take risks you wanna live through to tell the stories about."--Ilana Glazer, co-creator and co-star of Broad City

"Electric, daring, bold, ribald, terrifying. And that's just the first five stories."
--Dan Kennedy, host of The Moth storytelling podcast

"RISK! uncovers life at its most hilarious and terrifying. Each story leads readers over a tripwire and leaves you thinking, 'Wow...'"
--Glynn Washington, host of WNYC's Snap Judgment

"Evoke[s] both laughter and sadness...These fascinating, affecting confessionals are sure to reach readers beyond the podcast's scope."--Publishers Weekly

"Powerful...The writers in RISK! are unafraid to bare their souls. These stories prove that when you take a chance--in storytelling and in life--anything can happen."--Lisa Lampanelli, Comedian and playwright

"From out-there tales of cannabalism and almost murder (yes, really) to provocative stories of identity and gender, this collection will make you gasp out loud and perhaps inspire you to live a little larger."--Mind Body Green, "The 5 Books You Won't Be Able to Put Down This July"

"If you love hearing about real life stories that range from embarrassing to heartwarming to sometimes shocking, you're going to love RISK!"--Brit + Co

Brit + Co, "12 Books You'll Want to Read on the Beach This Summer"
Amazon, Best Books of the Month
AOL.com, "14 Beach Reads"
Kobo, Most Anticipated Nonfiction, Best Books of the Month
