Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Winner! Anita Daher has done it again. This is a page turner that is hard to not read in one setting! Her thorough research of her topic pays off in a readable, exciting story that introduces the rest of us to the world of parkour. As a teacher, I'd fully recommend it to any of my students if they want a thriller that is full of twists, turns and adventure. Fantastic book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ** A must have for every reader ** An instant classic! If you ever have a chance to pick up a copy of Two Foot Punch, be sure you do. Anita Daher has created one of the most indulging stories, perfectly mixing action and emotion, resulting in a page-by-page gripper like no other. I would recommend this book to any and everyone who enjoys / is involved in any type of sport, be it Parkour & Freerunning related or not. If you've never heard of Parkour, this book is one of the best starting places for getting to truly understand the mentality of a traceur. In 15 words or less: Great plot, emotionally engaging, superb imagery and suspense; a true literary classic.

Read from the Book

Parkour is about movement, it's about making anything and everything in my path a part of my run. It's about overcoming obstacles by moving over or through them. Parkour is an attitude. Above all it's about being free.

At least, that's what Derek used to say.
