Over the years, I thumbed through Christine Brennan's book Inside Edge several times in the book store and read long passages from it, but for some reason I can't describe, it never quite grabbed me.
But I finally bought a copy because I was running out of figure skating books and wanted more, and I have to admit -- it's highly entertaining and very well-written. Now I don't know why I waited so long.
I figure that almost everyone here has read it, but I'm stuck at work writing documentation (BORING!) and I need something to help break the monotony, so I decided to post as excerpts passages that have made me laugh out loud.
