"Tim’s story is one for the ages. Even after ten years of competing side by side, I never cease to be amazed by his indefatigable will and hunger for improvement. An impossible goal is only impossible if you make it so, and readers can learn a lot from Tim’s inspiring narrative about finding himself in life and in fencing."
-Jason Rogers, 2008 Olympic Silver Medalist, Men’s Fencing
