Figure Skating Luminaries Reveal Personal Reflections

This journalistic account takes readers on an insider's voyage to the heart of the sport, chronicles figure skating's history, interviews its stars, and captures the personal reflections of its most enthusiastic fans.

In their own words, well-known- skaters such as Elvis Stojko, Toller Cranston, Lu Chen, Robin Cousins, and Scott Hamilton offer their innermost thoughts and reflections on figure skating -- its past and future.

Figure skating luminaries like Sandra Bezic reveal the sacrifices and challenges made to become a star. Skate Talk is a moving portrait of figure skating and one that chronicles the sport as no other book has ever done.
