For more than two decades, journalist Don Yaeger, a former Sports Illustrated editor, had a front-row seat for observing greatness at sports fields, boxing rings, basketball courts, Olympic swimming pools and racing tracks: wherever great athletes competed. Yaeger spent hundreds of hours discussing greatness with elite sports performers. In his solid exploration of how to achieve greatness, Yaeger draws on the inspirational lives and character traits of great athletes. This is great fun – if not exactly great literature – and filled with triumphant stories. getAbstract recommends Yaeger’s insights to athletic adolescents and anyone who loves sports (particularly US sports, given the terminology) and who wants to learn about the personalities of champions.
