Foster writes in a very clear and succinct style that can be understood by readers of all levels. Equally as important as her descriptive texts is the visual expression provided by Schönberger's extensive photography of highly talented demonstrators. Skiing and the Art of Carving has more than 300 telling photographs many of which are painstaking composites. More effective than the fleeting images of a video, the reader can study each image in relation to other images within a movement pattern.From the Author:
At first glance, skiers notice that Skiing and the Art of Carving is rich in photographic demonstrations, including multiple image composites. The material is written and presented in a way that will help them improve their skills immensely. This is a book that skiers can read at night and apply their new-found knowledge successfully the very next day on the ski slopes.
