Let Go (2010) by James Starkman

Parkour is a French term for running around the city like awesome, crazy yahoos who let no obstacle stand in their way. YouTube videos show David Belle, who is credited with inventing the activity around Paris in the 1990s, leaping across rooftops, flipping upside-down, swinging with the poise of a monkey, and ricocheting about like some impossible/reckless video game character with a million extra lives to burn.
