Finish Strong is an excellent book. I was moved by the authenticity of Dan's account about the bond that forms between two brothers who wrestle that goes beyond friendship, beyond brotherhood, beyond words. And to face the fight alone after tragedy is something that only one who has experienced it can truly know. This story is a powerful reminder that even in the middle of our greatest challenges, we can find the strength to go on. --Mark Schultz, Olympic Champion and author of FOXCATCHER: The True Story of My Brother's Murder, John du Pont's Madness, and the Quest for Olympic Gold
This book is a riveting, dramatic sports memoir told straight from the heart. World-renowned wrestler Dan Russell skillfully guides us through youthful years of fanatically hard work, applying impossible levels of discipline in his headlong pursuit of Olympic gold. The lessons he learns, and the insights he gains along the way, can be applied to any life. Even as a youngster, he is taught that life is all about character and persistence and setting goals. And the passion he brings to the obstacles he encounters on this difficult journey ultimately molds him. His is a truly exceptional life, one packed with achievement. FINISH STRONG is an amazing testament, which sagely describes the bold, often lonely path that Russell chose, and the shaping of the loving husband, father, and spiritual mentor that he eventually became. --Spike Walker, Author of Working on the Edge-- the book that inspired DEADLIEST CATCH
