"Still Skating Forward" by Joanne Vassallo Jamrosz is a sequel to the popular book "Skating Forward: Sixteen Amazing Young Women Celebrating Life on Ice". Just as in the previous book, here also the author deals with the stories and experiences of Olympic and world famous skaters, judges and coaches. I found the book very inspiring and motivating. It somehow relates to all sports people making a foray into their respective sport and their trials and tribulations. Every chapter has a different story to tell the reader. The discipline and the rigorous training that a skater has to go through to make it to the top is not only a lesson to upcoming skaters but also to any sports person. The ordeals that they go through make you admire their grit and determination to make it to the top against all odds.
Each chapter of the book "Still Skating Forward" speaks about rise, fall, laughter, tears and mistakes and how each one experiences them in their own way. Each skater's story has some incredible experience to share with the reader. Some of the moments from their glorious lives have been captured and narrated. The book is a good read not only for readers who are keen to know more about skating but also for others. The language is simple and the narration is excellent. The stories are emotional and can touch anyone's heart. It also opens a window on the inside stories of the skaters. The book will resonate with everyone, not only with lovers of skating.
