Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Beneath a scrim of grungy, distressed-looking design motifs, skateboarding superstar Hawk presents a tour diary of his most recent trips around the world, from the X-Games to the Fox Teen Choice Awards and back again. Written in the dopey drawl of the diehard extreme sportsman, Hawk's diary extols a lifestyle of predictable thrill-seeking (donut fights in the RV, singing along to gangsta rap), in the end painting a portrait of a nice guy with not very much to say. With less-than-gripping sentences such as "The course looked fun, so I decided to skate a little," and "The crowd was huge as we walked in, and the street demo was exciting," the diary is largely an excuse for splashy graphics and photography, neither of which are delivered to much effect. Many of the photos are merely headshots of Hawk in far-flung locales, and the design looks like Raygun magazine circa 1996 at best. In the wake of the recent skateboarding documentary Dogtown and Z Boys, however, which turned self-promotion into an extreme sport of its own, this volume may well find an audience in the desperately-sought-after youth market of wannabes. (Sept.) Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
VOYA
Although attractive, Between Boardslides and Burnout is not an engaging read. In loose journal format, Hawk gives details of his various tours. Both the exhaustion and enjoyment of his life come through. One of Hawk's best tricks seems to be the amazing feat of balancing family life and fame. He projects something of a naïve image, although he has been on the road since he was a teen. There is a lot of name-dropping and talk of celebrities with whom he has come in contact. Color photographs and MTV-style graphics lend a chaotic air that conveys the stress and excitement of being on the road. Hard-core fans of Hawk will probably find this book mesmerizing, as will those who are pursuing a career on skateboard. Others might find the details of life on the road and one performance after another a little mind-numbing. Photos. Appendix.

    Awesome Book!

    This was a very good book, I have never known what its like to be a prfessional skateboader, and I didn't know that it was so stressful either. The insight to this lifestyle is very helpful and who other to tell us than Tony Hawk. This was a great book and everyone who likes skateboarding at all should read it
