5.0 out of 5 stars Frankie Manning Ambassador of Lindyhop, 10 Jun 2009
By 
An excellent look into the way lindyhop developed before the
war and the attitude that people had that were the main
dancers they really lived for their dance. Frankie has
brought to light a lot of behind the scenes politics that
that shaped the way the dance developed. A must read for
anybody who loves their swing dance and had respect for
Frankie as a dancer and a man.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read for Lindy fans, 23 Feb 2013
I'd heard a lot about Frankie having started swing dancing 4 years ago so was pleased when I found this book. Its definitely a reading rather than picture book but has some great original photos. Its great for finding out how some of the classic moves first came about.
