"Breathtaking....Crazy for the Storm will keep you up late into the night."
--Washington Post Book World

Norman Olstead's New York Times bestselling memoir Crazy for the Storm is the story of the harrowing plane crash the author miraculously survived at age eleven, framed by the moving tale of his complicated relationship with his charismatic, adrenaline-addicted father. Destined to stand with other classic true stories of man against nature--Into Thin Air and Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer; Sebastian Junger's The Perfect Storm--it is a literary triumph that novelist Russell Banks (Affliction) calls, "A heart-stopping story beautifully told....Norman Olstead has written a book that may well be read for generations."

Excellent memoir. I appreciated how he moved from the present to the past so show how he as a young boy gained expertise in getting through the challenges.
