Pretty much useless The book is 44 pages long and does not have a single photograph or illustration If you have never seen anyone do Parkour this book won t make any sense to you If you already know anything about parkour you are unlikely to learn anything new. Nice introductory book on Parkour Simple and short As I am not an expert on Parkour, I cannot say if there is something wrong in the book. Can t get enough Parkour. Could have included pictures and tecniques, a little to short..
