This book is amazing. Informative and amazingly interesting, yet also hilarious. Guaranteed to cheer up anyone struggling through the weekend ironing mountain - if you think your ironing is difficult, it's nothing compared to what these guys go through with theirs! Suitable for anyone and everyone, a book full of stunning acheivements and sheer wonder. What drives an extreme ironer to take part in this, we are led to believe, fast growing sport? Would make an excellent Christmas gift for someone tricky to buy for.

What do teenage boys read? Very little probably if they're like most! However, they may well read this and enjoy it immensely. There is quite a lot of reading in it and loads of amusing and interesting colour pictures! Great facts and explanations of this unbelievable sport. My boys were tickled pink by the picture of the "judges" of the standard of the ironing, and spent hours perusing the rules and regulations of the sport and the great pictures. A really good buy for an adventurous young fellow who was told to choose a book for the school prizegiving and was unable to find anything of the remotest interest in the local bookshop!!

For many years I have dived, canyoned, climbed, caved, ski-ied, white water rafted and bare backed rode white sharks. However despite the short term adrenalin rush their is always that slightly crumbled and creased aftertaste. Something has always been missing in my careless search for the ultimate thrill-but not anymore. A throw away Christmas gag has turned into an obsession- I am now looking to form the Languedocienne extreme ironing cell (English speaking but French, Catalans and Occitans accepted) and join the world brother and sisterhood of extreme ironists. There are many rivers to cross and many shirts to iron, but their ain't no mountain high enough, ain't no valley deep enough to stop this new ironing movement.

Im sure it is a serious subject for some but very comical for others. Laughed all the way through it.

Don't Iron on a highwire without reading this book first! 21 May 2014
By Christopher S. Marcum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
At first, I was a major skeptic of Extreme Ironing. But, two pages in and you'll be a believer. It never occurred to me that I could iron on a cliff, while skydiving, or at the bottom of the ocean. After reading this book, all of my shirts get starched while I juggle six running chainsaws.

HARDCORE IRONING 8 Sept. 2014
By Samson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The cutting edge sport of Extreme Ironing is beautifully laid out in these glossy images of towering, windswept peaks and bustling urban centers. Always present are the few and brave who seek to take Ironing where no one has before.
