Trial By Fire — Literally — In 'The Full Burn'

You'd have to be pretty dedicated to your work to set yourself aflame for "research purposes" — but author Kevin Conley did just that.

His new book The Full Burn: On the Set, at the Bar, Behind the Wheel, and Over the Edge with Hollywood Stuntmen catalogs the four years he spent following Hollywood stuntmen.

Conley also wrote the book Stud: Adventures in Breeding and is a frequent contributor to The New Yorker, GQ, and Men's Vogue among others.
