The book offers further insight into the champion's persona and the accompanying dilemmas intriguingly written thus, "The contradictions of the personality and career swirled in concentric, intermeshing circles much like the beautifully cut geometric arcs he traced in the ice surface as he spiraled ever faster toward a quad attempt. The duality. That was what drove the women crazy. Funny thing was, it drove him crazy, too."
