Michelle Kwan, Laura M. Peggy Fleming (Introduction). Michelle Kwan: Heart of a Champion" is about the life story of Michellle Kwan and how she grew to love her passion of ice skating. Her family had money troubles and had to move out of their house to rent a house. Michelle did what ever she needed to do to keep skating.

I love reading Olympic stories before the Olympics come on!

There should be a rule against teenagers writing autobiographies. Even teenagers who have achieved as much as Michelle Kwan had by the age of seventeen.

There was, admittedly, an obvious commercial reason for bringing this book out in 1997, just ahead of the 1998 Winter Olympics at which Kwan was expected to win a gold medal. She was fortunate to come into her sport immediately after the notorious Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan affair in 1994. The skating authorities had feared that this affair (variously known as Waterskate or the Battle of Wounded Knee) would damage their sport, but in fact it had precisely the opposite effect, thus proving conclusively that there is no such thing as bad publicity. Public interest in figure skating was therefore at its height in the mid-nineties, and much of this interest centred on Kwan, Tara Lipinski and Nicole Bobek who had succeeded Harding and Kerrigan as America's leading female skaters. Bobek, another pretty blue-eyed blonde with a troubled history, was immediately crowned Queen Tonya II, leaving Kwan and Lipinski to skate off for Kerrigan's role as America's sweetheart (a role in which Nancy herself had often seemed ill at ease).

There are two main problems with this book. The first is that it came far too early in Kwan's career. Since 1997 she has gone on to become one of the great female figure skaters of all time, the winner of five world and nine American national titles. Originally criticised as a "jumping bean", a purely technical skater, she has developed into one of the most artistic skaters of recent years. (She has never won an Olympic title, but the blame for that must lie with the eccentric judges who handed the 1998 gold medal to Lipinski, a skater who throughout her amateur career never seemed to get beyond the "jumping bean" stage). In 1997 Kwan's career was only just beginning, and her ghostwriter Laura James was left with little to do except narrate a pedestrian and repetitive account of Kwan's childhood and her early skating career, leavened with occasional bits of bland philosophising. The second problem is that it the book is appallingly badly written. Ghostwriters are not normally noted for a polished literary style, but James's is dull far beyond the call of duty.

I was disappointed with this book because I have always been such an admirer of Kwan as a skater. (The second star is awarded more for her skating style than for her book's literary merits). I hope that one day, preferably after she has retired, she will find the time to produce a proper autobiography and tell the full- and doubtless fascinating- story of one of figure skating's great careers. If she lacks the time or self-confidence to write it herself (although I generally find that autobiographies actually written by the celebrity whose name appears on the cover often read better than ghostwritten ones) she should find a writer whose talent matches her own for skating.

It was old used condition.... which described a good condition.
Okay my daughter loves her.
One thing... her book are almost same story... if we git one book of M kwan... probably it is enough so far.
This is a good book how she went through life and skating and family.

My daughter came across this book when she was 7 and had read it countless times during last two years to a point that she could almost recite the whole book... I finally decided to get her a copy for Christmas. :)

My daughter and I really enjoyed this book by Michelle Kwan. The story is very interesting and I like how Kwan focuses so much of the book on what she did to be the best (good sportsmanship, positive attitude, hard work). Very good values for aspiring skaters to read about and see that a champion follows, too! I also recommend her other book-- it reads more like an inspirational, quiz-type book, kind of like an American Girl magazine. This one is more pure biography.

my wife has loved figure skating since the age of 5 - loves everything about it. She liked the book - actually she likes every book about figure skating.

The book is a good read for youngsters. Ironically, it cost a penny, which was less than half a percent of the shipping/handling charges. No complaint, though, because in an upside down economy, what can you expect?

amazing, wonderful autobiography
Michelle Kwan completely captivates her reading audience with her geniunely honest, and uniquely compelling recount of her private and professional life. Though she does not let the audience into all her inner most self, her awesome ability to showcase a role model to people of all ages is very evident. Michelle takes the reader into her early life, family support, and rise to stardom within her sport of figure skating. She gives responsiblity for her career accolades in part to not only herself, but her family, her coach/choregrapher, her mentors: the Probst, and Tom Collins and his brother,and Brian Boitano. She reveals how it feels to win, and how she copes with disappoints. She shines within her openness and candor recounting how she inspires and motivates herself and then in so doing, inspires others to do the best one can. I recommend this book to people of all ages, and have donated this book to a local school library. I have read this book twice, and could not put it down until I finished. I own the hardback and paperback covers. Though the hardcover does not include her Olympic experience, the paperback does. This added section is short, and not as informative as I would like. But, it was written soon after her Olympic disappointment, and I am sure it was hard to write at that time. At least she gave her readers a glimpse of her experience. After reading these books, I conclude that, Michelle Kwan truly has the "Heart of a Champion", and has in turn become, the Champion of Hearts.
