Hamilton's inspirational life story recounts events from the time of his debilitating childhood illness, through the many years of training, the death of his mother, competition failures and successes (most notably his Olympic gold medal), and his recent successful battle with cancer.

Here is a champion who recounts his mistakes along with his victories, pointing out the lessons he learned along the way. Hamilton is able to portray the sense of community that skaters share, substituting for family life as they train and perform away from home. This book shows Scott Hamilton as human, even humble, and full of good cheer, just as he seems to be on the ice.
