Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Inspirational Journey As someone who's a self professed fangirl of this dynamic duo, this was the perfect book for me. I really enjoyed this book and the behind-the-scenes look at their history. Additionally, this book included many, many pictures (moreso than thought there would have been). Some of these photos have been seen in the media before and widely publicized but there's also photos that were more personal taken from their own collections. I liked knowing more of the background and history of their journey but I also liked the knowledge that was gained related to the extent of commitment and dedication they have to this sport. Not many people in their childhood would move out of town (to live without their family) in order to pursue a passion. There were many other examples that truly showed the level of commitment that they had/have to pursue a dream. Definitely an inspirational read that was enjoyable because I like this duo but also enjoyable in the fact that it's an example of how you should work hard and follow your dreams. Yes, you may not be the next Olympian (or award winning actor, author, doctor...insert your passion here) but you will never know unless you try.
