Steve Wolf has been shot, set on fire, tossed from buildings; he's even fallen from mountains. During 20 years of stunt and special effects coordinating, Wolf has worked on movies that include Tom Cruise's The Firm, Tom Hanks' Cast Away, and Paramount's Hustle and Flow. He's engineered effects for America's Most Wanted, Law and Order, David Letterman, and Whitney Houston, and holds world records for zip lines and explosions. Much of his work looks dangerous, but in his fun and educational book Wolf reveals how everything's done safely using simple school science. Yo''ll understand the physical science that goes into movie work, and appreciate how learning science can open doors to exciting careers.
