"The Great Eight" was a beautifully written piece that covers Scott's many trials and tribulations - learning the "figure 8" skate move (and patience and not giving up in the process), testicular cancer, brain cancer, going for the gold - that Scott has triumphed in his life. This book gives the 8 secrets Scott has lived by, and is an uplifting, easy read that applies to real life. I thought when I first started this book it would be a preachy "be happy" book and was pleasantly surprised to find it was an uplifting, sometimes humorous, take on life. The best part of the book was the way it was written - almost as though Scott was there, speaking directly to you. Definitely a must read for anyone who needs a pick-me-up. And a perfect gift for someone hard to shop for.
