I first have to state that I loved this book. Being an avid curler I was amazed that an individual could write such a detailed account about a curling story. Even though I really enjoyed it I feel that the story could also be enjoyed by anyone who isn't a curler.
The book follows the journey of a Canadian curling team (team Gushue) from their first stones all the way to them winning the 2006 Olympic gold medal. I really enjoyed this story because it looked at all the different aspects of development throughout the curlers careers. Furthermore, the other great thing about this book was it included a glossary of all the different curling terms used. The glossary makes this book easy to understand even if you are not a curler because it clearly outlines and describes all the curling terminology.
While the writer captures the story within the writing I find his use of photography also allows the reader to visually follow the curling team’s journey. Every page is filled with at least one detailed photo that really allows the reader to be captured in the moment.
If you are a curler I would defiantly recommend you read this book because it takes you on a journey that is not often documented in literature. Even if you are a non-curler this book is a great read because it introduces you to this amazing sport, while providing you with detailed information about all the little nuances about the sport.
