From Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean to Shae-Lynn Bourne and Victor Kraatz, the great names of figure skating offer a behind-the-scenes look at one of North America`s most popular sports. The first-hand testimony of athletes, coaches, choreographers, administrators and reporters gives us an insider`s look at the past, present and future of the sport - and at the people who make the sport great. From choreographer Marina Zoueva remembering the late Sergei Grinkov to Elizateth Manley reliving her Olympic medal-winning performance, SkateTalk chronicles the sport as no other book has ever done. It is by turns heart-rending and poignant, and uplifting and inspirational.
