What people are saying about the book: Comment from a reader: "I highly recommend that you order Jo Ann Schneider Farris' book, How to Jump and Spin on In-Line Skates. It'll answer a lot of questions, help to get you started, and is a real encouragement. It's a great reference guide and fun to read (also has photos)." Patti From Liz Miller, well-known California skating instructor and author of the books Get Rolling and California Inline Skating: "Jo Ann has a warm, encouraging and very enthusiastic writing style, and she delivers what the book's title promises: information about the in-line figure skating discipline, gear, and moves. The gear section and glossary are also useful." From John Petell, President of Harmony Sports: "Jo Ann's book is a giant step toward exposing the fine sport of in-line freestyle skating, with its many and wondrous movements, to the public. From Nick Perna, National and International figure skating coach and co-inventor of the PIC® Frame Skate: "This book is well written and extremely thorough for this type of instruction. I think just about anybody who is interested in in-line figure skating techniques will be able to learn something new from this book." Comment from the author: "I want to encourage everyone who in-line skates to consider jumping and spinning on your skates! It is so much fun. You don't have to be an advanced figure skater to jump and spin; on in-line skates, there are no rules really, so you can even create your own moves. Also, consider this: imagine how impressed your friends will be when they see you do a small jump, glide into an artistic move like a spiral, or see you spinning on one foot? They might want to try it too. For me jumping and spinning on in-lines helped me remember why I enjoy skating. It is so challenging, and there's always something new to try. I'm never bored! You'll find that learning to jump and spin is just adding another satisfying dimension to in-line skating. Keep in mind, the main thing is simply to go out there and have fun!"

Since its establishment in 1683, Perth Amboy has been a progressive and welcoming community. Residents have consistently made a stand for equality--in the 1920s, riots at a local KKK meeting ousted the Klan for good, and the nation's first African American vote was cast here by Thomas Mundy Peterson. Another Perth Amboy first was Dr. Solomon Andrews's flight over the town in 1863. Since 1853, the Eagleswood School has hosted lectures from figures like Henry David Thoreau. In 1968, the Perth Amboy basketball team swept the state championship. These and Perth Amboy's other fascinating stories and characters are chronicled by local author Katherine Massopust.

More than a celebration of skateboard graphics or photography and videos, more than a personal memoir of one life on four wheels, this book argues that riding a skateboard is an art form of the same kind and stature as the traditional visual and performance arts. Like a paintbrush or a musical instrument, the skateboard has become a tool of limitless creative possibilities. Not a sport, often a crime, and for many a broader lifestyle, skateboarding transforms mundane travel and neglected spaces into extraordinary experiences and spectacles. Mullen, Gonzales, Hawk, and others count among its Masters.
