I read the entire volume in two days. I could not put itdown. The plot lines leading up to what would hopefully reveal the finalathletic and legal outcomes of Boevski were compelling. Mr. Georgiev has done amaster job of story telling. One that will provide a much need insight into thepsyches, personalities and foibles of star weightlifters and theircoaches.
Bob Takano, coachand author of Olympic weightlifting
It's quite a fascinating story, with quite a bit ofdrama, as well as elements of tragedy. I found it to be a very gripping andcompelling read.
