Review quote

Freestyle Skateboarding Tricks is a book designed to help young people develop skills in the sport of skateboarding, from flat ground, rails, slices, grinds and transitions. The step-by-step instructions are clear, simply written and include an insert titled Common Problems, which gives hints to young learners who face problems with the specific trick. The coloured photographs are amazing action shots of kids maneuvering their skateboards through each move. Authors Sean D'Arcy, a professional freestyle footballer, and Phillip Marshall, a professional freestyle skateboarder, have combined their knowledge and love of sports to write a book that children and youth alike will find appealing and useful. Because all the tricks are listed on the back of the book and in the table of contents, young athletes can find their choices quickly. A very interesting history of skateboarding introduces the chapters.--Elaine Fuhr"CM Magazine" (11/26/2010)
