"How gratifying to read a book that uses dancing as a metaphor for life and shows how it inspires the steps forward that every woman needs to take. This riveting personal story is guaranteed to help anyone find their center and balance. Brava Janet!"
-Evelyn Lauder, Senior Corporate Vice President of the Esteé Lauder Companies, Inc.
"Janet Carlson beautifully describes ballroom dancing as intricate, joyful, athletic, and most importantly, a way to learn how to live life. If you can't hit the dance floor, read this book. Better yet, do both."
-Barbara Lazear Ascher, author of Landscape without Gravity and Playing After Dark
"It's like combining a gym membership and therapy. Plus you get to do it in heels."
-- Los Angeles Times
"Carlson is to be commended not only for getting out of her marriage and moving on, but also writing about it in such an open and liberating manner."
-- USA Today
"Carlson draws you into the experience until you feel you are in the arms of a muscular Eastern European in tight pants. Is that such a bad thing?"
-- New York Post
"While Elizabeth Gilbert [author of Eat, Pray, Love] traveled the world to suss out what she needed to know, Janet Carlson had only to buy the right shoes and show up at a local dance studio."
