High Risk is Ben Timberlake‘s true story of life in the SAS, it’s the perfect listen for any adrenaline junkie. It’s available now exclusively on Audible.
Sex and drugs and lock and load.
Ben Timberlake has spent a lifetime in pursuit of the ultimate rush. This is an account of his near-execution in wartime Yugoslavia, his time in the SAS, combat in Iraq, encounters with a gambling-obsessed 9/11 hijacker, veterans blissed out on MDMA, as well as exploring hook-ups in the world of extreme sex and battling a heroin habit on a remote Scottish island. In this pilgrimage on the road of excess Ben looks at the social, biological, religious and personal factors that drive people to the edge and has a whole lot of fun along the way.
The why? As Mallory said of Everest, ‘Because it’s there.’ In Ben’s case, there was no risk too high or gutter too low.
High Risk is a high octane and often jaw-dropping listen. Ben narrates his own story and builds the tension perfectly before seconds later, having you laugh out loud. It deals with some pretty heavy subjects but the way Ben has both written and tells his story makes the entire thing a wonderful journey of one mans pursuit for the perfect high and the craving to constantly feel that adrenaline rush.
Ben’s story is a unique, fast paced listen that is extremely addictive and one that you will urge your friends to listen to.
