Interesting - I'm not really sure exactly who the target audience for this book is. Adolescent females in Gordeeva's fan base? Children? Mothers with children? In any case, it is not nearly as saccharine and oversold as it could be, despite the plethora of cute pictures of Katia and Daria. This is chiefly due to Gordeeva's straightforward, no-nonsense personality. Her observations on the kind of upbringing she had, and the changes she has made for her own daughter are interesting, and there is enough biographical material regarding her life and her career to make this worth keeping in the collection.
