I'm somewhat familiar with Misty Copeland after reading her autobiography, watching a documentary on her (have never seen her perform though), etc. I was curious to see what this book was about since she told her life story before. What could be new here?
Turns out she jumped on the fitness/book writing trend among celebrities/well-known figures. Copeland takes the reader through the story of her life as well as expanding on exercise, diet, meditation, recipes, etc. There are pictures of her performing and posing as well as how to perform the various exercises, motivational tips and more.
I liked the book but I figured it wasn't going to be something that I'd want to keep or really read in-depth. Her story and background was already known to me so that information was a bit repetitive. And while I like the concept I could have used a few less photos of her eating or performing and more of the exercises she was doing.
Still, it's a nice book for fans of Copeland or aspiring ballerinas. I don't know how effective or useful her tips for exercising and diets are but it would probably make a great gift. I borrowed this from the library as it's out now and would recommend you do the same to see if it's really for you.
