Synopsis: This visual record gives a comprehensive view of modern roller derby. Through 353 images, professional photographer Jules Doyle, a.k.a. Axle Adams, documents regular season bouts and independent tournaments, both flat track and banked track. Experience the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. Jules Doyle gets front and center, capturing all the crushing hits, stifling blocking, and nimble jamming. He also goes behind the scenes for the private moments: pre-bout rituals, injuries, and the frustration of being sent to the penalty box. Having photographed over seventy leagues in action, Doyle traces the rise in popularity of this fast-growing sport from its original founders to the modern day "stars." Fans of roller derby and lovers of fast-paced, contact sports will enjoy modern roller derby's history, while photography buffs will appreciate Doyle's artistic prose with the camera.

About the Author: Jules Doyle is a professional photographer with a highly recognized presence in the sport of roller derby. His roller derby photography has been published internationally in various books and magazines. He has photographed over 70 roller derby leagues around the world.

Store Description: Books are a gateway drug. It starts out innocently enough, reading C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, pretty soon you are reading harder stuff like Kerouac and Burroughs, the next thing you know you're strung out on Bukowski and DeSade, worrying about the Patriot Act and Free Speech, and joining the ACLU. If books are your drug of choice, Last Word has your fix!
