Anna brought this book home from the school library. Needless to say she is loving the Olympics. I wasn't sure about the content for a seven-year-old, so I decided to read it one night. Well beyond her level of understanding, but it was interesting. You can tell he was coached and had a good editor, but somehow his sincerity still came through. Athletes live very interesting lives!

Great Olympic story read

This was his 1st book and I think overall its really good, however, in his next book, "Zero Regrets" that was just released a few months ago, its almost basically the same. It was good though, whichever book you read

I enjoyed this book. I am not big into Autobiographies anymore but I am just amazed at the determination and how powerful this man body and mind are.

It gave me a new respect for Olympic athletes and what it takes to get to that level of competition and what it costs the family.

Can't decide if I should give it a 2.5 or 3 so decided to round up for my rating.
