Expertly wowen together through years of hard work by Miss Julie Angel, the book will take you through the ups and downs, the good, the bad and the ugly that is life and human nature - even for extraoirdinary individuals. Because beyond the obvious, the popular myths, the media hype and polish, this is very much a compelling story simply of people, passion and life. And, as is the way with life, don't expect to understand everything, to get all the answers or an ending. In fact, there can't be an ending, because we're all in the middle of it, writing the next chapter right now...
If you think you know the story already, think again! There are plenty of surprises, details and never before told stories and facts that will leave you amazed and humbled - and for me, personally, with an even more overwhelming sense of honor and responsibility for protecting the discipline that have been passed on to us, than I felt before.
- Mikkel Rugaard, Ceative Director at Street Movement
Julie Angel provides a very interesting narrative on the early history of Parkour from its birthplace in suburbs of Paris in the 80’s and on into the 90’s. Her writing style and the use of [relatively] small chapters make the information a compelling read. If I had to be critical I’d politely suggest that the portals of some of the characters involved might be coloured slightly by the authors later involvement with some of the persons referenced. But, all in all this is an excellent book on the subject; a very inspiring read.
I enjoyed the book from start to finish. You don't need to practise parkour to enjoy this book.
