“True stories of ordinary Australians who risked their lives to save others. One minute everything is normal. The next, tragedy looms – a crazed gunman, a burning house, someone swept out to sea. What do you do? In many of these true stories there have been several onlookers, but only one person has leapt into action. This fascinating book looks at why some people are prepared to put their lives on the line for another – often a complete stranger – while others stand frozen on the sidelines.” — BooksDirect.
