By Doug Brown 2014 - Category (AUTO-BIOGRAPHY)

"Inspirational and exciting, Bliss of the Unwind is a magnificent story of Doug Brown's life. He shows us that we can achieve by believing in ourselves, working hard, and by always looking for our pearl in the shell. Not only do we learn the details of how he reached and continues to reach his achievements, but we learn how he chooses daily to give back to society. He uses his many talents to inspire others to find and use their own talents. Bliss is fun to read for any 80's child, with references from music, movies, and TV shows from the times. It's a "feel good" story that also teaches about strength, determination, tolerance, and diversity. Highly recommended, five stars!!"

How did I get here? From being a kid on a skateboard, doing it for the love of the sport, to being a man with paying sponsors, to the Dew Tour, to becoming a motivational speaker and author. My life a whirlwind of plane rides, hotels, contests, my love life, good times, bad times, lots of money, no money. How were these things cultivated from nothing more than luck, a wooden board, and four spinning wheels? That question would unveil itself slowly as I looked inward to examine my life to this point: from the tragic loss of my mother—which was an unbelievable low—to this proud moment of being in the spotlight. From my experiences as a child actor that morphed to my time in a band and ultimately led to my discovery of skateboarding; all these elements that seemed unrelated, but blended together and became the critical experiences that made up my life, my career, my nucleus. - Doug Brown



By Doug Brown 2017


Doug Brown used to get detentions as a teenager for skateboarding in school. Now he's asked to skateboard and speak in schools. This professional athlete, author, and motivational speaker tugs at heart strings with advice for the struggling adolescent. Not far removed from those years, Brown relates his own life experiences with powerful words of wisdom.

Doug Brown dives deep into his own tender teen years to share his experience sprinkled with real life advice and tools to help teens make positive life choices and be encouraged. Brown did not hold back from tackling head-on all relevant issues that teens today are facing: parents, siblings, school, body changes, peer pressure, dating, jobs, driving, bullying, social media, and more. Brown uses his own life experience to relate to teens on their level and show them the outcomes they can have based on the choices they make today. Brown’s journey through adolescence led him to be the man he is today and he takes us down the road that started him on that path. Brown offers hope to teens to find their own road to travel that will guide them to their destination. Through many trials and adversity in his teen years, Brown shows how teens can persevere and follow their dreams to become the adult they want to be. Brown offers a great read that at times is funny and even sad, but most of all, it is raw, real life and completely relatable to what teens are going through and what they are faced with in today’s world.

This book is a great read for all teenagers, parents of teens, or even adults who want to reflect on their own adolescent years. For the adult reader, Brown will help you relate to what teens are going through, while remembering the trials you encountered during your own teen years. Brown’s emblematic theme of hope and optimism continues to resonant throughout this book and can encourage anyone, whether a teen or adult.

Brown teaches us that the choices we make, both as teens and adults, have a lasting impact on our own lives and importantly the lives of others. Brown encourages us to choose to travel the positive path to make an impact on the world.

- J. Thompson

"The first two books gave us just a glimpse into the life of Doug Brown, but his third book takes you deep into the life events that made him who he is- the reasons behind his passion for people and giving back. It is a great read and a wonderful inspiration to us all to be who we are and not back down from our dreams. Thank you Doug!" - Sandy, Cedarville University

"I have enjoyed reading the last two books and the 3rd does not disappoint! I have already recommended it it to several of my friends & family!" - Tracey,
American Red Cross

"Doug's writing never fails to amaze me. His first two books were incredibly inspiring, and this third book definitely follows the path. Reading about his journey through life, and how he overcame certain situations by turning negatives into positives really makes you look at life with a whole new perspective. I definitely would highly recommend this book. Congrats on the great work, Doug, and thank you for your continued inspiration to so many!" - Kristina Furguson, Ahshford University

"Let me start by saying that I think this is an excellent book. I found it to be very genuine and thoughtful. While reading Doug's story, you find yourself thinking about your own life. I found myself looking back on life- the ups and the downs- and while his experiences were much different than mine, they were still easy to relate to. And although some of his experiences were very extreme and rare, they provoked a lot of thought. He has been down a rough road and came through with an incredible amount of strength and wisdom. As a prevention professional, I found that Doug shows tremendous resiliency and is a great role model for young people. I highly recommend this book for anyone of any age. It's an easy read that will make you stop and think about your life, realize what you have to be thankful for, and know that despite hard times, you can overcome your obstacles." - Alison Lindquist, Health Education Specialist

"Inspirational and genuine" - Variance Magazine

"Doug Brown's book interested me partially because I love to read memoirs and autobiographies, but for personal reasons as well. Having a little brother who skated as an outlet and living under the veil of death, addictions, and recovery drew me to learn more about the Skate Straight program. I learned of what Doug Brown does before I read this and found out who he IS. To find out in the first few pages that I could connect with the author made this a book I'll definitely read more than once. I recommend to anyone who has had to find out who they are [or who is still searching] and overcome tough circumstances." - Stephanie Jensen, Freelance Writer
