For those who enjoyed the movie this comes at the right time with the London Olympics 2012 next month. The movie was an inspired piece of original script, wonderful directing and excellent acting.
This biography will give greater insight into the life of Harold Abrahams one of the two main characters in the movie. The writing is brisk and very readable. Photos of Harold in his running days are included. Ryan has done his research well though it is a pity he did not cite endnotes and provide a bibliography in his book. I would also recommend The Flying Scotsman by Sally Magnusson which is on Eric Liddell the other character in the movie.
