An introduction to women's figure skating is followed by a brief history which focuses on some of the sport's past stars and pioneers. Each of eight chapters features an athlete with information on her early on her early life, how she got to where she is today, her athletic accomplishments, quotes from her and about her, a tip or playing technique, statistical charts, and, most important, a defining moment in her athletic career. Featured athletes are Oksana Baiul, Surya Bonaly, Nancy Kerrigan, Michelle Kwan, Tara Lipinski, Chen Lu, Katerina Witt, and Kristi Yamiguchi. The final chapter of the book will look at the future of the sport and identify some up-and-coming stars.
