Think you know the story of Olympic runner Zola Budd? Think again. Even if you remember how the barefoot prodigy broke world records and was blamed for favorite Mary Decker’s career-crippling fall, her story has more heartbreak and nuance than the headlines would have you believe.

I'm an avid runner and was inclined to like this book from the start, but it's really a story everyone can relate to and should read.
Very insightfull and well told. Things are never what they appear on the surface. But, Friedman peels through cover and gives us the whole story.
