Great overview of a great skater
on 30 April 2001
I saw Tony on the TV a few days ago, and thought I'd give his book a go. Tony was the boy back in the day - I mean really! He rocked. Thankfully he didn't become a statistic like so many others did, and he went on to rule again. I wasn't expecting all that much from the book to be honest, but I was surprised at how good and in depth it was. One thing I would say is that there are a whole heap of what would have been blank spaces filled with pictures of ABEC 5's for some reason, and they continue throughout the book. Small gripe though for a book that has kept me amused and given me a bit more of an insight into not just Mr Hawk, but the 80's skate scene which I enjoyed, but was too young to understand.
Buy it, you'll be happy you did.
