Summary: In the glamorous, ultra-competitive world of figure skating, Katarina Witt is a living legend. She has won more titles than anyone else before her -- including two Olympic gold medals, four world championships, and eight national championships. She is also renowned for independence and self-possession in a world where many stars are in thrall to management companies, and for her ability to stay true to skating while developing new careers in business, movies and television.Witt has always done whatever she's done with all her heart -- with passion, intelligence, and a love of perfection. Now, inOnly with Passion, she offers advice to a new generation of women athletes making their way in the world on how to live full out, compete with edge, and navigate life with grace. When a young skater consults her for advice on whether to train abroad -- and leave a boyfriend behind -- Witt finds occasion to recall the major turning points of her own journey, from her East German childhood to the international spotlight. She shares her inside perspective and frank opinions on the insular world of skating and offers her views about what it takes to be a champion, and to create a fulfilling life. Whether she's talking about life on or off the ice (or on the cover ofPlayboy!), Witt is always candid, fresh, and down-to-earth.Written with E.M. Swift, author ofMy Sergei, one of the best-selling skating books of all time,Only with Passionis the perfect gift for young women, young athletes --particularly skaters -- and skating fans of all ages.
