Conner holds a unique place in the history of the America's Cup: He was the first to lose it and the first to win it back. Comeback is Conner's story from that heartbreaking loss to the triumphant 4-0 series win. Though Conner discusses the politics and money management involved in mounting a Cup attempt, most of the book details the races and the men who sailed them. We see each of the races Conner sailed to earn the right to challenge for the Cup and each of the four races necessary to bring the Cup home. A brief glossary of sailing terms, the crew and team rosters, and the race results are included. Essential for most public libraries. BOMC alternate; Dolphin Book Club main selection.
