I finished reading this recently, and figured a lot of folks here might enjoy it, so I felt compelled to say something...
Chewing the cud of a lifetime on skis.
That's how this collection of remembrances and musings strikes me. From growing up as a young ski racer out of Reno, to becoming the world speed skiing champion, to time spent in the Tahoe area, then on to Sun Valley, and all points in between, it's all good. Really, really good. A very satisfying read. If a scan of the table of contents intrigues you I encourage you to snag a copy from the bookseller of your choice, enjoy it, slowly, like a box of fine chocolates, and then turn someone else on to it.
For any of you Republicans/Conservatives out there who would be turned off to the book on the basis of this title alone you should know that Teddy almost dies in the story, so you might enjoy it after all. ;-)
