In terms of “Danger” in literature, who else does it better than “Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang?” As part of our look into danger this week on BreakThru Radio, I examine the pop cultural phenomenon that is James Bond. How did this suave man of mystery become the billion-dollar film and literature business it has? I also look at the dangerous pastime of baseball. Believe it or not, baseball can be hazardous to your health. In 2007, baseball professors Robert M. Gorman and David Weeks published an account of all the deaths in baseball over the last 150 years. Finally, in tribute to all those backpackers and risky travelers out there, I examine two books that detail some of the most dangerous spots on Earth.

Ian Fleming
