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.”

“It’s like my bud Scott says: ‘You can’t just skate through life and expect to be happy!’”
~Kevin Nealon, actor, comedian, Saturday Night Live alum
