Gymnastics has always been a highly subjective sport—a fraction of a point can mean the difference between glory and defeat. Elise Arsenault narrates this wide-ranging book, which provides a trove of history, biographical accounts, and interviews relating to the sport. She walks a fine line, giving subtle individual voices to some of the people involved—coaches, athletes, and others. Delivering appropriate intonation throughout, she provides just enough drama in her delivery. Many changes have taken place in this sport over the years—from the body types of the athletes to the proliferation of training gyms in some countries, including the U.S. Gymnastics lovers will appreciate this book’s history and insights.
