A few pages are devoted to the very basics, but that's all.
It's structure is a bit weird, but once you get used to it, the biography's of the tango dancers are most inspiring.
The list of worldwide tango venues is useful for anyone that travels and the history of the tango is short and to the point.
My only complaint is that I would have liked more..

This is just a book on what they each feel and how they all came to love and work in the world of tango.
That's great, but, if you purchase the book for any insides on improving your dance, forget it. Anyone who loves and dreams
of tango knows implicitly already that tango is from the heart. I don't need to buy another book to know this. I bought the
book thinking it would give me tips on improving my tango and for the most part it did not do that, other than telling me to look
inside myself. I don't recommend this book to anyone wanting improvement. It was written so the publisher could say she published a
book on tango. So what? To me the book IS a very nice compilation of famous dancers talking their trade, so for that it's enjoyable.
There's insight into Paul and other famous dancer's lives, along with some excellent photos. It is just not what I thought it would
I love tango and was looking for a book that can provide me with atleast some basic understanding. This book does not do that at all. Its poorly written and have no technical information about tango. It is not written by one author either. The theme of the book is Mr. Pellicoro himself. Mr. Pellicoro is claiming to be the master of tango but did not mention winning any international or national tango competition. He did not mention of getting any formal tango training or school.
The Author also claims to teach Hollywood actors tango for example Al Pacino. The thing is that Al Pacino did learn tango for a movie " Scent of a woman". He played a character who was blind and mentoring a young man. If you see Al Pacino tango performance in the movie, you will realize that it was not a great tango performance. Yes, it was a great acting performance.
As we all know Al Pinco never won an international or national tango competition. But the author of this book claims that he taught tango to Al Pacino. The author should not take credit for Al Picno's work and use it as marketing tool to sell his book. Do not waste your time and money on this book.
