Book Description

Including facsimile reproductions of primary-source documents from civil lawsuits against the U.S. Olympic Committee’s governing body for competitive youth swimming, this follows the story of widespread sexual misconduct by coaches, which was first reported in 2010 by ABC’s 20/20. The book raises serious questions about whether Chuck Wielgus, the executive director of USA Swimming, has made good-faith reforms of USA Swimming procedures, and whether he has been truthful in public statements about the scandal – including sworn statements, under penalty of perjury, to courts adjudicating claims of victims.

1.0 out of 5 stars Penn State in the Pool--the usa swimming team April 1, 2013
By mt
Everyone should be outraged by the insinuation that what Jerry Sandusky did at Penn State (the crime of one man) and a concerted effort to cover up abuse in the USA swimming program is somehow the same sort of story. Facts are facts, and one has nothing to do with the other. The title is outrageous. Don't pay good money for this kind of trash. Maybe a better comparison is the planned coverup by the Catholic Church and the coverup by the USA swimming program. There is NO evidence that Penn State actively covered up for an acting coach at the University. There are NO facts to support such a claim--only a rush to judgement.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why is this titled Penn State? April 1, 2013
By Beth
I'm so confused. How does USA swimming relate to Penn State? As a past swimmer, through the USA swimming program, I am so confused as to why Penn State is referenced? I think I know the difference between USA swimming (which I was a swimmer for) and Penn State (which I did not swim for)

1.0 out of 5 stars MISLEADING TITLE OF BOOK April 1, 2013
This book has nothing to do with the events at Penn State where one single person abused children, not multiple people in an entire organization. If the abuse was so widespread, this article or e-book should have been named 'Priests in the Pool" or "Catholic Church in the Pool". That would have been more relevant than this title ... the two are completely unrelated.
The actions of one retired former coach of the football team at Penn State are unforgivable, and that responsible individual will spend the rest of his life in prison for the atrocities that he committed. But the author disgustingly used that school's name in title of this "book" just to grab headlines and attention, and shame on him .....

1.0 out of 5 stars Penn State in the Pool April 1, 2013
This book and its title are but one more example of how people can get away with putting anything in print -- true or not. The occurrence at Penn State was by a former football coach who had retired in 1999. The author should be sued.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing but trash, provocative title April 1, 2013
By reader
This author is pathetic. The story has nothing to do with Penn State. And yet, Penn State is in the title of this book.
Utter crap! Save your 1.49

1.0 out of 5 stars TRASH April 1, 2013
By nal
Who would title a report like this?? This clown is either a con-artist trying to cash in on the penn state name - or he's clearly so stupid by selecting this name that he has zero credability in saying anything valid. FAIL.

1.0 out of 5 stars what has Penn State got to do with USA swimming? April 1, 2013
Penn State had nothing to do with the USA swimming coach molestation of children. What is Amazon thinking to allow this type of title to be sold through their site?
