Captivating and compelling biography of a champion!
Posted by Anonymous on 6/24/1999
Michelle Kwan completely captivates her reading audience with her geniunely honest, and uniquely compelling recount of her private and professional life. Though she does not let the audience into all her inner most self, her awesome ability to showcase a role model to people of all ages is very evident. Michelle takes the reader into her early life, family support, and rise to stardom within her sport of figure skating. She gives responsiblity for her career accolades in part to not only herself, but her family, her coach/choregrapher, her mentors: the Probst, and Tom Collins and his brother,and Brian Boitano. She reveals how it feels to win, and how she copes with disappoints. She shines within her openness and candor recounting how she inspires and motivates herself and then in so doing, inspires others to do the best one can. I recommend this book to people of all ages, and have donated this book to a local school library. I have read this book twice, and could not put it down until I finished. I own the hardback and paperback covers. Though the hardcover does not include her Olympic experience, the paperback does. This added section is short, and not as informative as I would like. But, it was written soon after her Olympic disappointment, and I am sure it was hard to write at that time. At least she gave her readers a glimpse of her experience. After reading these books, I conclude that, Michelle Kwan truly has the "Heart of a Champion", and has in turn become, the Champion of Hearts.

Anyway, this is a great book and Michelle has a GREAT attude about life. "Work hard, be yourself, have fun" is her motto. She really lives by it too. She knows how to take life and make the most out of it. She may have lost in 1998, but her attude about getting the silver really proves she has the heart of a champion.

This book is very sweet. No fluff like Triumph on Ice. It shows how MK dedicates herself.
