    I was expecting more.

    I am a fan of Larry's, however I can't imagine that he would have condoned the writing of his story in this manner. The story is very worthwhile, however the grammatical errors & spelling mistakes make me wonder if this book was edited at all.

    A Must Read to Appreciate

    Wonderful work and simplification of a skater's life. It has been written in all it's complexities with regards to the skater, yet it is simple to comprehend. A must read for aspiring skaters who will want to take a look at the pitfalls and disappointments as well as the triumphs involved in the sport and a life. It is a great read also for motivation, inspiration and encouragement for any one who is striving to be the best they can be in life as well as in their desired ambitions. I give it very high marks.
