あらすじ・解説

Former Olympic figure skater and self-professed America's Sweetheart Adam Rippon shares his underdog journey from beautiful mess to outrageous success in this hilarious, big-hearted memoir.

Your mom probably told you it's what on the inside that counts. Well, then she was never a competitive figure skater. Olympic medalist Adam Rippon has been making it pretty for the judges even when, just below the surface, everything was an absolute mess. From traveling to practices on the Greyhound bus next to ex convicts to being so poor he could only afford to eat the free apples at his gym, Rippon got through the toughest times with a smile on his face, a glint in his eye, and quip ready for anyone listening. Beautiful on the Outside looks at his journey from a homeschooled kid in Scranton, Pennsylvania, to a self-professed American sweetheart on the world stage and all the disasters and self-delusions it took to get him there. Yeah, it may be what's on the inside that counts, but life is so much better when it's beautiful on the outside.

My friend Adam.

I knew him when. I was learning halfs while he was learning triples. We laughed a lot. We had a huge laugh about Brian Joubert’s quads. I thoroughly enjoyed his book because I always liked his honesty, his integrity and his perception and none of those traits have changed. I wish him all good things in the next chapters of his life.

Must listen for any fan, dreamer or person who loves to laugh

There are no words for how enjoyable this book is. Firstly it’s inspirational and relatable for any person going through a time of growth and self-discovery. Secondly it’s laugh out loud funny while telling the story beautifully. I highly recommend the audiobook, the personality and unique story telling Adam adds to his performance make the book feel like one long conversation over coffee. Also now every time I see a green apple I will think of Adam Rippon haha

The most hilarious memoir I’ve ever read!

Adam Rippon not only kills it as an author but also on his audiobook performance. Listening to memoirs read by the author is my jam and I don’t remember ever laughing out loud so often as I did listening to Adam. Perfect mix of inspiration and hilarity!

Lutzing his way into life!

Ok, tried to make a figure skating job on the title there! I am a figure skater and I saw that this book had come out and, when I heard it was narrated by Adam, I decided to grab the audio. I usually listen to Audible in my car, I would actually park and just stay there listening to the book! Whether you are a figure skating fan or not, you will love this book! Adam is candid and funny. It was like being inside his head as he recounted his childhood and teenage years. I had never heard this type of detail on what it takes for an elite athlete to become one. It takes more than a village and a lot of work on top of talent! The fact that Adam only went to the Olympics on his 3rd try and was not even in medal contention makes this book extra special. It shows how a human being can grow into being the best version of themselves - and this what Adam achieves. Spoiler - he does get a medal in the team event! This book made my love for gay men even greater!!!!

Entertaining and inspiring!

Adam did an amazing job with this book and the recording, much like anything else he does. His voice is honest and he is willing to be vulnerable and show himself with his full range of human emotions. Those are the stories I can relate to the most as his journey reminds me of mine. It’s a real easy and funny read and the humor is smart. I’m still rooting for you!!!!

Adam is a sassy badass and deserves everything

Adam opens up and shares a very long journey with us using all of his humor, color, and honesty. His mom is superwoman and has all my respect and praise. He is a new type of inspiration for this world....
