    I read the Mick Fanning book then this one I don t like how both are a series of interviews which are transcribed and pasted in the appropriate order, with the subject filling in.Additionally, the subject jumps in with no separation in the text Too often I have to jump back because I think I m reading what someone thinks of the subject and not what the subject s thoughts are.This writing style feels lazy to me Anyone with access can go to someone s house or call them and record the conversation, then transcribe it and paste it.The best written part was when the author wrote about his thoughts on Occy This was fun to read because it wasn t in choppy here s what this person had to say format.I won t be reading another TB book.

    A great read I was familiar with Occy as a surfer, but never knew about his struggles I am so glad he made it through all of that and revived his career and just went back to ripping it on the tour Sounds like everyone, even the Hawaiian surfers thought a lot of Occy My only wish was that there would have been a bunch of pics in the book.

    I wouldn t normally read a book about a surfer, but decided to because I remembered meeting Occy when I was a little kid and thinking he was just the coolest The book was definitely sad in parts and I really felt sorry for him with some of the things he went through, but it also showed that he has a really strong spirit to overcome things in his life It really made me feel a sense of hope.

    It was ok.I liked reading about the places he went, and the people he met.I just felt like there wasn t a whole lot of conflict or resolution.Just a slow autobiography I was really interested at first, then I loststeam about 2 3 of the way through.

    Occy is a fresh, funny, authentic, insightful surfer who has a lot to share with the surfing world.

    A great story, but only just an entertaining read A lot is skimmed over, especially during the Elvis years.
