I Almost Fell Off the Top of the Empire State Building: A True Story of Trauma and Survival by Joe Soll with Susan Hawvermale

I Almost Fell Off the Top of the Empire State BuildingFrom lying on a New Jersey highway with cars speeding by his head in both directions, to being shot in the head by a manic sniper and almost falling to his death from the top of the Empire State Building, Joe Soll’s autobiography details these events and more than a dozen others in which he was within an inch or a second of instant death. Along the way, he tells of being sold in the black market as an infant by an infamous baby seller and an impossible search for his original family; his struggle to survive a myriad of traumatic events; overcoming acrophobia so he could put up television antennas on some of the tallest buildings in the world and ultimately becoming a well-known psychotherapist and author of over a half-dozen self-help books and mysteries. A truly startling event occurs just before the conclusion of this very unique book.
