Editorial Reviews

Review

[Milton] reviews performances at the 2007 international competitions, providing more trivia about placements than even diehard enthusiasts might want.... Where the book shines, however, is in the exceptional photos by Gérard Châtaigneau, which show the glamorous costumes in detail never available to those watching on television or in an arena. On their own, they are worth the price of the book. (Carol Jankowski The Record (Kitchener, ON) 2008-01-12)

This non-fiction title is nothing less than stunning in its presentation. Full colour throughout, Chataigneau's photography is fabulous, giving us images rich in expression as well as movement. The format of the book is excellent... This title is a must-have for any library that has readers interested in winter sports and skating. Readers from fourth grade to adult will find it jam packed with statistics and the story behind them. (Linda Aksomitis Resource Links, vol.13, no. 4 2008-04-00)

Steve Milton shows you the best new figure skaters from around the world with stunning color photographs on each page, along with a brief biography. If you're a fan, you'll want to page through this book all season long to check on the backgrounds of these amazing athletes. (Rainbo Electronic Reviews 2008-01-01)

THIS BOOK ARRIVED IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, HOWEVER, THERE IS LIMITED CONTENT. PHOTOS ARE NICE, BUT NOT ANYTHING DIFFERENT THAN CAN BE SEEN IN THE SKATING MAGAZINES. THE SELECTION OF FUTURE SKATING "STARS" FEATURED IS A RATHER ONE-SIDED VIEW.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I wish their was a classy revue like this one of Figure Skating stars available at the end of each season. This is an interesting and very beautifully photographed snapshot in time at the end of the 06/07 season. It is interesting to note who has evolved and become the current favorites since this book was published. Especially, Yuna Kim who has gone on to hold most of the important titles and records in the women's division. She has demonstrated a level of technique and artistry that would put her on the cover of any new edition as we cruise into the 2010 Olympic season.
