by Mick Fanning and Tim Baker
Random House. Australian, Biographical. Paperback rrp $34.95
But getting the review was easier said than done. I begged. I asked questions … “Did you like the book?” “Yeah.” “What’s it about?” “Mick Fanning!” “Anything interesting about his life?” “Yeah. He won his first surfing competition at Sandon Point (my son’s local surf spot) and won $21,000 and it was on the day his brother, who had died, would have turned 21! How incredible is that?”
Well that about sums it up. I can’t get a review from my son but at least I can get him to happily read a book. My son thoroughly enjoyed it and going to Kirra for Christmas to the relative’s place made it a little bit more special now that he knows he might bump into Mick Fanning!
