Description
							Since well before his epic 1974 walk between the Twin Towers of the World Trade  Center, Philippe Petit had become an artist who answered first and foremost to  the demands of his craft—not only on the high wire, but also as a magician,  street juggler, visual artist, builder, and writer. A born rebel like many  creative people, he was from an early age a voracious learner who taught  himself, cultivating the attitudes, resources, and techniques to tackle even  seemingly impossible feats. His outlaw sensibility spawned a unique approach to  the creative process—an approach he shares, with characteristic enthusiasm,  irreverence, and originality in Creativity: The Perfect Crime.

"Like all extraordinary artists, Philippe Petit's practice is founded in rigor, scrutiny, and dedication. What sets Philippe in a class all his own is his restless quest to conquer the greatest physical heights, achieving a precise balance of chaos and creativity. He is an inspiration to all who dare to dream of the seemingly impossible. Dear friend: I salute you!” - Mikhail Baryshnikov
