Grade 7-12-- This up-to-date book on the basics of artistic gymnastics clearly provides information on clothing, equipment, safety, warm-ups, and the basic skills of each event for men and women. Diagrams with explanations and safety considerations for developing basic skills are clear, concise, and easy to follow. Excellent black-and-white and color photographs of world-recognized gymnasts are included with each event. Rhythmic and acrobatic gymnastics are very briefly described; these chapters do not include information on skills and drills. Accomplishments of 16 world-famous gymnasts are listed at the end of the book. This revised edition will appeal to beginners or beginning coaches of gymnastics. The vocabulary and complexity of the many diagrams make the content difficult for a young reader. A glossary is not provided, but would help to clarify many of the gymnastic terms. Elementary school children might find the photographs appealing, but this is a book for serious gymnastics enthusiasts. --Janice C. Hayes, Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro
