I'm so happy Richard wrote this book. It's a beautiful exposition of everything I loved about learning to dance from him, and about dancing in general, and the waltz in particular. It ranges from instructional and practical to romantic and spiritual in exactly the expansive, joyful way that a book about social dancing should. Every dancer should read this.
