Landing on My Feet: A Diary of Dreams Reviews
This book is an excellent book for worldwide gymnastics fan. Kerri Strug gives an account of the rise and falls, ups and downs, and most captivating moments of her gymnastics career. She talks about the rough, but loving relationship she has with her coach Bela Karolyi. She talks about training at several gyms to eventually reach her bittersweet goal. I think we all remember that July night in 1996. Buy it today!!!
As a gymnast I never paid much attention to Kerri Strug. I was always rooting for Kim Zmeskal, Shannon Miller, or Dominique Moceanu. After her stunning performances in Atlanta I was urged to read this book. I could not put it down. I never realized how many times she moved, the injuries she had, and her struggle to acheive her goals. After reading this revealing book I never looked at Kerri Strug the same.
Kerri's story is amazing! Definitely, the best gymnastics book I have ever read. She gives you an in-depth look at what she went through, striving for her dreams. The pictures are exceptional. She tells of her heartbreaks, the times she wanted to give up, her recurring inuries, and triumphs! A must read!
Kerri is a wonderful peson to read about and this book tells her fellins and the troubles she went through to get where she is today. This book gives hope and high goals to all the gymnasts in the world today.
I beieve this book is a book of encouragement. It shows that one person's is never to impossible to accomplish.This book is about all Kerri Strug had to go through to ;stress factures, physical & mental anguish, and possible career-ending accidents; get her one time in the spotlight and Olympic dream, even though she didn't make all-around.I would glady recommend this to anyone!
