Phil K Swift is one of the hippest cats you will ever meet in your entire wildest fantasy of a life. He is a legend in his own mind, a real B-boy (break dancer) whose life revolves around Break-Dancing, Girls, Hip-hop, House Music, and a Rock N Roll lifestyle. Phil navigates his way through the mean Windy City streets of Chicagoland befriending B boys and B girls along the way. Watch him tastefully deal with big city gangbangers, bullies, and other trash talkers. Phil K. Swift assembles an incredible break dance crew called the Neighborhood Street Rockers who find themselves in a break-dance battle that has more on the line than pride and money; everything is at stake. Can they all make it out of Chicagoland Rink alive? Boys who read this book will unlock the secrets to being cool while also learning what to say to bullies so they dont get pushed around. Girls who read this book will learn that boys like to lie their teeth off in an effort to try and get what they want out of them. Read this book if you dont want to get played. This book is a slice of 1980s Americana, written by a true B-boy from the original breakin era. It is a NOT TO BE MISSED crazy adventure about the underground culture of the break dance scene. This is a great find for anyone that wants to meet a cool cat that is able to keep his morals and beliefs right, even within the face of peer pressure. If you have ever roller-skated to disco music, break-danced to hip hop, grooved to house music, watched local rock bands play live, have followed the DJ scene, or you want to learn more about it, then this book is for you . While reading this crazy-ice story, here is what will happen: You will see how Phil went from being a geeky-nerd to a cool and hip-cat just like that .
