Most of us crave new experiences and sensations. Whether it's our attraction to that new burger place or the latest gadget, newness tugs at us.

But what about those who can't seem to get enough? They jump out of planes, climb skyscrapers, and will eat anything (even poisonous pufferfish) ...

Prompting others to ask 'what's wrong' with them. These are high sensation-seekers and they crave intense experiences, despite physical, or social risk.

They don't have a death wish, but seemingly a need for an adrenaline rush, no matter what.

Buzz! describes the world of the high sensation-seeking personality in a way that we can all understand.

It explores the lifestyle, psychology, and neuroscience behind adrenaline junkies and daredevils.

This tendency, or compulsion, has a role in our culture.

But where is the line between healthy and unhealthy thrill-seeking?

The minds of these adventurers are explained page by page.
