    Ich habe mir dieses Buch auf Englisch bestellt, weil es nicht mehr anders verfügbar war. Es liest sich sehr interessant, natürlich muss man selbst irgendwie mit BMX verbandelt sein oder gewesen sein. Vieles könnte man 1:1 auf sich übertragen, allerdings nur bis es in den professionellen Bereich reingeht. Irgendwann ist man sich nicht mehr sicher, ob man Mat beneiden oder bedauern soll. Die Verletzungen und wirklich haarsträubenden Aktionen sind bestimmt völlig unnötig gewesen, um den BMX-Sport dahin zu bringen, wo er heute ist. Man könnte meinen, er hätte mehr als nur ein Leben zu Verfügung. Dennoch oder vielleicht gerade deshalb ist das Werk absolut empfehlenswert!

    Mat Hoffman made me want to be a 15 year old bmxer. Stud rider and an even more engaging story teller. This book is a great read for anyone who walks (or in this case rides) to the beat of their own drum!!

    Matt has a pretty cool story to tell. If you are a fan of BOX then you will dig this book.

    Hate to use that tired phrase, "A must read," but being a BMX racer from the early- to mid-eighties, I missed out on the mid-school era ('90s.) Saw some stuff about Mat Hoffman and discovered this book was available. I read it and was blown away. If you are into BMX from any era, you have got to read this book. very interesting and insightful.

    I'm a 35 year old bmx rider. I read about all the stuff that is in this book, but from the point of view from the people writing the articles. It's realy cool to hear the behind the sceens version of it all.
