one of the best books I've read,
This review is from: Hawk: Occupation: Skateboarder (Hardcover)
I have had a difficult time lately trying to keep any kind of momentum in sticking with a book and actually finishing it. I did not have that difficulty with "Hawk:Occupation:Skateboarder."
Actually, I had a hard time putting the book down. This was a thorougly enjoyable book. I don't skateboard either, but you don't need to be a skateboarder to enjoy this book. It is an easy read-- it's not heavy so you won't get bogged down. He writes the book in a very conversational style like he's talking to you. And he tells you a lot about your life. When I finished reading the book I felt like I really got to know about Tony Hawk the person, not just Tony Hawk the cultural icon or skateboard star. And I also felt like I got to see an intimate view of the skateboarding touring scene. Very recommended.
