About the book:
You might not know his name, but chances are you’ve seen veteran stuntman Carl Ciarfalio in blockbuster films and TV shows including Fight Club, Far and Away, 24, “Walker, Texas Ranger“, Casino (remember the guy who got his head crushed in a vise?) and many more!

This book shares Carl’s best stories from four decades in Hollywood, from his humble beginnings as a bumbling cowboy stuntman at Knott’s Berry Farm to what it’s like to work with elite actors and directors. You’ll be riveted by these insider stories about mega-celebrities and gnarly stunts; Carl’s successes as well as a few embarrassing moments; and his unique insights and advice about the exciting world of stunts.

Carl’s life off the set has been just as interesting. He opens up about a teen pregnancy, single fatherhood, surviving a nasty Hollywood divorce, finally finding true love – and the time he got run over for real by a criminal driving a half-ton truck!

As compelling as your favorite action movie, Stars, Stunts and Stories will have you turning the pages … and glued to your seat!
