Editorial Reviews

Review

Galabin Boevski is a complicated figure and weightliftingis a complex sport, filled with intrigue and drama. On the stage, the bar doesnot lie. You either lift it or not. Behind the scenes, however, as  The White Prisoner: Galabin Boevski's SecretStory makes plain, it can be an enormous struggle not just to become Olympicchampion but to stay on top.
Alan Abrahamson,bestselling author
 
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.
Daniel Rosen,author of Dope: A History of Performance Enhancement in Sports from theNineteenth Century to Today
 
TheWhite Prisonerprovides a rare glimpse into the world of Bulgarian weightlifting--chroniclingthe development of Olympic gold medalist, world champion and world record holderGalabin Boevski, and how things went awry: first in weightlifting and thenin Brazil.  If you are a weightlifting fan, this is a must-read book, andif you want to be introduced to a gritty world and a universal sport you mightnever have known existed, you will also want to dive into The WhitePrisoner.
