Beloved Olympic skater shares his secrets to happiness on and off the ice.

Scott Hamilton has experienced the heights of accomplishment and the depths of disease, from winning the Gold to becoming a cancer and brain tumor survivor. But through his successes, struggles, and setbacks, Hamilton has never lost his trademark humor and honesty. More important, he has never lost his faith and optimism. How does he keep smiling?

In The Great Eight, Scott uses stories from his international career and personal life to describe the eight secrets that through commitment and repetition have helped him clear the ice, get back up, and smile like Kristi Yamaguchi.

Scott Hamilton ... lives his life as a champion. Everyone needs the positive message of this greatly inspiring book.

With never-been-told, behind-the-scenes stories from the skating world, personal challenges including testicular cancer and a brain tumor, as well as divine miracles, Olympic Gold Medal figure skater Scott Hamilton shares the secrets to his lifelong journey to find the silver (and gold) lining in the clouds of life. His life principles, fashioned into eight secrets that begin with the rote of learning to skate the figure 8, are the keys. Scott says, "Skating taught me how to be happy. I have always kept these eight as my own private, personal secrets that I practiced daily with repetition, focus, and discipline. Now I want to share them with the world."
