From Library Journal:

Kerrigan, the 1994 Olympic Silver medalist, is best remembered in connection with the dramatic events of that year, when the world watched her being attacked by relatives of her competitor, Tonya Harding-an event that cast a shadow over the entire Winter Olympic experience that year. Kerrigan's book at first looks as if it were meant for those who want to learn to skate. But it isn't. It is instead for advanced skaters concerned with the advanced techniques of figure skating. Such skaters may find little here beyond what they already learn from coaches, judges, and special off-ice instructors, however. Kerrigan covers spins, jumps, and moves in the field, all of which she knows a lot about. But she also includes ice dancing, pairs, and synchronized skating, with which she has had little experience. Where Kerrigan offers good guidance is in the chapters devoted to the daunting experience of competitive skating. For the small community of advanced competitive skaters, this book will be interesting if not essential reading.-Bonnie Collier, Yale Law Lib. (c) Copyright 2010.
