I honestly don't know what battles I'm going to face next, only that I have the spirit and the will to face anything and fight for my sport and for what I believe is right. I'll give 110 percent and still dig down deeper for more.

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!

I thought it was interesting reading about his Olympic training and life background. It was fun reading about his training in Colorado Springs since I'm very familiar with the city. This was a light, easy, and fast read but also interesting.
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.
A little boring...but that doesn't matter because he's hot!
