Book Review from Kim McNerney

“My first response to Skiing is my Passion, A Memoir by Tommy Waltner, was noting the strikingly authentic voice and tone.  This in itself is an achievement.  This memoir is full of the genuine, real and captivating – various sojourns into some globe trotting, dedication to a number of athletic disciplines, forays into entrepreneur endeavors, testimonials to people along the way and giving back/playing it forward.  Too, it follows Waltner’s  ups and downs, struggling with the consequences of some choices – that embarking on a path of self-correction, his success striving and his resurfacing with a beautiful appreciation of the wonders of life and friendship.  Those of you who may know Waltner may know what you are in for – I didn’t meet Waltner until 2006-7.  I was in for a big and wonderful surprise.  It was a blast reading your story Tommy. BRAVO, BRAVO!”
