I thought this book was very inciteful, and very useful too! 'The Winning Attitude' gives useful hints and tips that apply to just about everything in life; whether it's competing in sport, striving to get straight A's, or just trying to be a better friend. Michelle certainly has made an impact on my life - yet again, and I recommend it to everyone. Whether you're 10, or 100, a little girl or a teen ready to take on the world, this book is for you!

Being a competitive skater myself, it's sometimes hard, especially on bad days, to keep perspective and to keep going. Michelle's book is GREAT! It really helps you to focus and get back on track -- and stay there! For anyone who works hard at anything they love to do, at age 5 or 105!

Michelle Kwan has always been one of my idols through out my skating career. This book really made me see that I can accomplish my dreams as long as I work hard. Anything can happen if you just believe in yourself. The best parts of this book were the quizzes at the end of each chapter. They really teach you something about who you are. This book is a must read! I haven't met one person who has said the loved it!

Format: Paperback
Michelle takes us through how she was inspired to become an olympic athlete.

The first part of the book is about 10 attributes we need to pursue our dreams, as well as how to differentiate our dreams from idle fantasy. She talks a lot about the discipline and attitude required. Her optimism and grace are felt throughout. She peppers the book with stories from her career and how her attitude was beneficial in good times and in bad.

The second half of the book details how to get serious in our pursuit of our goals. She finishes with a chapter on common sense, which while incredibly basic still covers territory I wish more self improvement books would detail.

Through it all her personality and good sense sparkles, as well as her love for what she has dedicated her life to.
