5.0 out of 5 stars Candid look inside the heart and soul of a champion, November 9, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Zero Regrets: Be Greater Than Yesterday (Hardcover)
From the first sentence, you are hooked. You quickly realize this is not the typical celebrity tell-all. This is a candid look into the heart and soul of a champion and how he finds inspiration in his own life.

For a young man who is accustomed to showing no emotion on the ice, Apolo truly opens up about his challenges, insecurities, and successes. Apolo does not paint himself in a totally positive light either. He acknowedges the mistakes he made, the path that was leading him astray, the rebellious years where he butted heads with his father. He readily gives praise and respect to those people that made a difference in his own life through their support, coaching, expertise, friendship, loyalty, and love. However, Apolo stops short of any mention of his romantic life. By his own admission in a recent interview, he did not want this to be a book about "women I have dated or who wanted to date me."

Apolo provides an inside look into the sacrifices he made and the grueling training schedule he endured to prepare for his Olympic pursuits. He talks about his thoughts in those moments before his races, during his races, and after the races. Apolo's personal philosophy that things happen the way they are supposed to provides an interesting perspective on each of his wins and losses, successes and failures.

And for those who first met Apolo on Dancing with the Stars, you will not be disappointed. He recounts how he was first approached to do the show, his decision to participate, and his experiences as part of the wildly popular reality show.

This will be a book that you will read more than once. It will be your go-to book when you are searching for inspiration to get you through your own challenge. It will be the book you will reach for when you need motivation. It will be a constant reminder that life is best lived when you strive for zero regrets.
