    Book review: The Mutt

    Growing up, Rodney Mullen¿s father had always told him that skateboarding would ruin his life. Instead it has given him freedom. Despite holding the best record in consecutive contest wins, his father had told him to stop mocking his 4.0 GPA and stop skateboarding. Rodney would turn his father¿s negative words into fuel that drove him to become the best, winning a decade straight of skateboard contests. The Mutt, written by Rodney Mullen, is a biography of himself. Starting from 1966, it tells of how he was the family misfit, a scrawny, pigeon toed boy who had to wear ¿torture boots¿ to straighten out his feet. Rodney tells how he dealt with drugs, anorexia, isolation, suicide, and a military-disciplined father who almost made Rodney stop skating for good. He tells how he has gone from being the family misfit who was branded a bum and a nerd to creating almost every trick in the sport of skateboarding and creating some of the most successful skating brands in the world. With amazing detail and imagery, The Mutt is a fantastic book that has excitement and wonder. Once you start reading, you get sucked in and can¿t put it down. The book is very easy to relate to and is a fast read. The length of the book is only 273 pages long so it goes by fast. Anyone who enjoys biographies and a good book about how a champion makes it any sport will enjoy this book. I would definitely give this book a 10 out of 10 and it is in my opinion, the best book I have ever read. It is defiantly my favorite book. -Richard

    Great Book

    This book is a great read it is, in my openion, really funny, but its not ment to but at a few parts I caught myself laughing out loud. The book shows Rodney Mullens Rise to the top, as he grows in buisness, and in life lessons. One of the best books i have read this year.(I read a lot)
