Review

Praise for "Down and Derby"
"As someone who has witnessed the many transitions of roller derby almost from the beginning, I can say that this chronicle isn't just for fans of all the stages of the game, but for anyone who wants to enjoy an inspiring story about truly fascinating people." --Jerry Seltzer, derby pioneer and owner of the original Roller Derby league
"Fast, dirty, seductive, kooky, cunning, foxy, cheeky, wicked, crazy, bad arse and most importantly, no bullshit.

"Part manifesto, part how-to-guide, "Down and Derby" demystifies the world of roller derby, showing readers it's as inclusive as it is cool. After finishing this book, you no longer have an excuse for keeping your boring name or for never trying on a pair of skates. This is require
