Parkour, the Art du deplacement or freerunning: whatever the name, this new discipline born in the Paris suburbs is rapidly being adopted by people throughout the world. These athletic artists or artistic athletes want to take back the urban environment. Not satisfied to suffer through urban life, they want to thrive in it, all the while earning dignity by daringly reappropriating three fundamental motor skills, running, jumping, and climbing.
Vincent Thibault approaches parkour as an attractive solution for rival gangs, a force against the overwhelming inertia, and an occasion to challenge one’s own fears. Reflecting on the culture of effort, he also avoids the media-based trap that depicts Parkour as just another of those elitist extreme sports. This book is a philosophical and lyrical adventure into martial arts and chivalry in an urban setting.
“Exceptionally well written and captures the spirit of parkour beautifully.”
- Steve Nagy, Artistic Director, Breathe Parkour
“There are very few relevant books on our discipline. … This is one of the rare books of quality. It is not a manual but instead a clarification on Parkour philosophy in which the author addresses themes like freedom, effort, fear, pride, solitude, courage, humour, and important social and community aspects of the art.”
- Dan Edwardes, Director, Parkour Generations and Parkour UK
“Parkour and the Art du Deplacement is a must-read for any beginners looking to get into parkour and find out more about the discipline, and a highly recommended book for anyone else (traceur or not). There are not many books about parkour available at this time, and it is important to have a text that summarizes who we are, what we do, and why we do it in such a concise, interesting, and enlightening way.”
- Thomas Dolan, NYParkour.com
“This is a completely refreshing and inspiring point of view. Thibault opens up a big door for us and new ways of thinking about moving through the world. Not only can we talk about parkour as the physical act of freerunning through an urban environment, we can now begin to talk about entirely new disciplines such as “cognitive parkour,” “psychological parkour,” “social parkour” and even “spiritual parkour.” This is the new horizon for our physical disciplines and whole-life training. Many thanks to Vincent Thibault for this insightful and groundbreaking work.”
- Frank Forencich, Chief Creative Officer, Exuberant Animal
“Parkour boldly affirms that you can find art anywhere, even in the most unsuspected places; that an original poem can emerge at any time from the banality of everyday living. A moment of inspired creativity can suddenly explode from what seems to be nothing but grey walls and slabs of concrete. Ideally, the parkour artist is a warrior who is intimately aware that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, who is not just an observer, but importantly, an active participant.”

Linear Algebra: A First Course presents an introduction to the fascinating subject of linear algebra. As the title suggests, this text is designed as a first course in linear algebra for students who have a reasonable understanding of basic algebra. Major topics of linear algebra are presented in detail, with proofs of important theorems provided. Connections to additional topics covered in advanced courses are introduced, in an effort to assist those students who are interested in continuing on in linear algebra. Each chapter begins with a list of desired outcomes which a student should be able to achieve upon completing the chapter. Throughout the text, examples and diagrams are given to reinforce ideas and provide guidance on how to approach various problems. Suggested exercises are given at the end of each section, and students are encouraged to work through a selection of these exercises.

The book presents an introduction to the fascinating subject of linear algebra. As the title suggests, this text is designed as a first course in linear algebra for students who have a reasonable understanding of basic algebra. Major topics of linear algebra are presented in detail, with proofs of important theorems provided. This text intends to transform students from passive observers of mathematics to participants in it. The book employs a spiral development of ideas to blend the requirements of problem solving, analytical thinking, computational technique, and applications, and emphasizes the interplay of algebraic and geometric concepts.
