I have been a fan of Tony Hawk since I was a kid in the 80's, and my first board was the hawk skull and cross. Tony's book returned me to my youthful bliss and all the great things that came with skating in the 80's. I still am an avid fan of skating and all Hawk has done for the sport. His book allows the reader to see a part of him that isn't normally scene; his various emotions. The book leaves no part of Tony's life unmentioned. I highly recommend this book for any of Hawk's fans, and skaters in general.
