No one can attain great proficiency without acquiring this knowledge- the one who by aid of natural talent alone, without due study of system and methods, becomes a performer, never goes beyond mediocrity.Let skaters, whether they are novices or already somewhat proficient, bear this fact in mind, and by the study and practice of proper methods they can effect the satisfactory improvement sure to result therefrom.If our words serve to make easier the paths whereby grace and perfection in skating may be reached, and stimulate to practice the skaters who have ceased to try for further improvement, as also those among beginners who fear to attempt more than merely rolling around the rink, then the mission of the Instruction Book will be accomplished.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
