No Comply: Skateboarding Speaks on Authority Book, Softback
This book went from an idea to completion in three months. The number of skaters interested in commenting on authority was both expected and staggering. The ensemble is non-clique-ish and eclectic, the intent to get cohesive and rounded input from all generations of skateboarding.
Contributor include professional skaters, skating journalists, writers, skateshop owners, teachers, students, college professors, lawyers, engineers, photographers, artists and designers. There are all obligatory animosities and f-bombs you might expect from such a title, but this relationship between skateboarders and authority also gets the unexpected scholarly treatment it deserves from this intelectual cesspool boasting over a dozen college degrees. "No Comply" has something for and from everyone indeed...
