I chose to read this particular book because I had read it when I was in elementary school and now that I am much older and have a better understanding of concepts stricter and other literacy subjects I wanted to test my knowledge and see if I what I could not have seen when I was elementary school. I basically wanted a different perspective on this book.

I find that this book shows us the true stories and feelings of being on the road most of your life and touring around like a band essentially. The theme I found in this book was Life on the road has its ups and downs. I found textual evidence here "I did not know who pink was until I got there." This shows that life on the road has its ups and downs because you never know whom you are going to meet and the story that comes with them. In summary of it all the book goes deep into the life of Tony Hawk on the road and that he had his up and down for the entire trip but it was fun and would not trade his job for anything else. I also saw some new terms such as sketchy " ... he had one recovery from a sketchy landing ...", he used the word sketchy because it is a commonly used work in youth and others of a younger age and it means a bad or very hard to recover from looked scary. Then in reading some of the reviews I had to agree with one of them it was " I am personally a Tony Hawk fan and loves this book because it gives a real understanding of the person under the skate boarding star." I found this to be real because when you look at the book the author is tony hawk and he has all these side notes and pictures that you could only get from him, and I thought that was pretty cool.

So in conclusion if you like Tony Hawk then this is the book for you I would recommend this to any Tony Hawk fan.

I am a young girl and I thought it was a little hard to read because of all the skateboard terms that I was not aware of. I found it interesting and quickly learned what a 360 flip to fakie was, a varial heelflip melon to fakie, stalefish 540, and a kickflip varial indy 360, with some of them named after his favorite stars. (Madonna & Sean Penn). I would recommend this book to any avid skateboarder that is aware of skateboard tricks and the names of them.
I gave this book 4 stars because I love Tony Hawk and his inspiration that he gives others. He is an example of being a true friend, co-worker, father and husband. He is very grateful for all that he has and knows that it is his fans that have got him where he is today. This book is full of great photo's and awesome tricks! A must read for any Tony Hawk Fan!

The setting of this book is everywhere in the United States like California,Arizona,New York City,and Connecticut.But the setting is probably in California because thats the state that mostly appears in the pages.The conflick of the story is that Tony hardly gets to see his family because he is a professional skateboarder and he is also famous.He is always traveling around the world.Sometimes when he has some extra time in his schedual he can visit his faily for a couple of days.The plot of the story is that it first talked about Tony Hawk's 6 grade teacher.Next he filmed for the movie The New Guy.Tony had to do a stunt on a ramp.Last he went to the ESPN Action Sports and Music Awads where he won an award.

this book is really great. i bought it because it has many pictures, it is very detailed, and it shows how difficult one day could be for the great Tony Hawk.Tony is a big inspiration to many people including me. So, if your child wants to read something that shows how much work they should put into a day, they should read this book and see how much Tony works for people every day. Anyone who likes skateboarding should buy this book.

This book displayed an exuberant amount of beauty and color about skateboarding as it is. He has been my idol since I first learned to walk and after reading this book it has brought up my hopes of being a carnie. I beleive whoever reads this book will have the same opinion. It has changed my life's perspective on how tennis players are so awesome!!...
