This is a nice tribute to figure skating and its significant participants. It takes skating from its beginnings among the Dutch to the present day skating stars who win gold medals at the Winter World Olympics every four years. There are many historical photographs and its good to see them. When I first nudged (and that's all I ever did) into the world of skating, although there were many TV shows showing national and world championships, but there were very few books written about the subject.
