The impetus for this skating tome is easy to figure out: TV’s rink ratings have never been higher. Hence this truly axel-lent, trivia-packed primer on the sport, with sections on skating fashions, great moments on the ice, even tips on how to execute a flying camel or triple toe loop. Now there’s simply no excuse for not knowing what a salchow is. (Simon & Schuster, $30)

Bottom Line: Lutz of fun for skating aficionados
