About the Author

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir won the 2010 Olympic gold medal in ice dancing. They are also the 2010 World champions, the 2008 Four Continents champions, the 2006 World Junior champions, and the 2008–10 Canadian National champions. They received the first perfect score for ice dancing under the International Skating Union (ISU) Judging System, and are the current world record score holders for the original dance. As of September 2010, they are ranked fourth in the world by the ISU.

Steve Milton is a sportswriter who has covered six Winter Olympics and more than a dozen World Figure Skating Championships. He is the author of nine figure skating books, including Figure Skating's Greatest Stars and Figure Skating Now.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It made Tessa and Scott real to me, an iceskating fan. By the end of the story I felt as if I was with them.

A great read for any Virtue/Moir fan! Lots of interesting tidbits and side stories from the Olympic medalists! I had read some less than impressed reviews but bought it anyway, and I'm so glad I did! It reads like a biography but looks like a coffee table book!

This appears to be little more than a compilation of publicly available pictures and stories that appear on the internet. No new insights, no new revelations. In fact, it looks like a long-form press release explaining exactly what Virtue-Moir want you to believe about their "unique" partnership. I was extremely disappointed. If anything, you may want to purchase the book from a used book vendor at a deeply discounted price.
