This is a good, fair book
This book is fair. Some people are just fanatics who think it is never fair to say anything less than worshipful of Michelle Kwan or to say that someone deserved to win over her. To recommend a Christine Brennan book instead is outrageous. She is the epitome of one-sided trashy tabloid writing, whose greatest target of abuse was Tara Lipiski.Was this review helpful?

Well written and beautifully illustrated
This book is a refreshing change from the tabloid style of skating journalism, typified by the writing of Christine Brennan, that has held sway in this sport since the Tonya-Nancy fiasco. The writing is insightful and well-balanced, while the pictures alone are probably worth the modest price of the book. If you value unbiased, thoughtful journalism then you'll enjoy this book. If you prefer your skating writing to be of the 'National Enquirer' variety, then you'll probably prefer the books written by Christine Brennan - to each his or her own.Was this review helpful?
