From AudioFile:

One of Scott Hamilton's early skating coaches had an ironclad rule: If you fall during a routine, you bounce back up and skate on, smiling. This habit of tenaciousness not only helped Hamilton win Olympic Gold, but kept him going through a chronic childhood illness and, recently, an episode of cancer. His fast-paced memoir will appeal to even the most casual fans of competitive skating. Since Hamilton does TV sports commentary and is comfortable with a microphone, and since so many are familiar with his voice, this is one autobiography that could benefit from being read by the author. Doug Ordunio's reading is satisfactory though. His pace is good and his emotional coloring tastefully modulated. S.P. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
