Library Journal - Library JournalThe U.S. men's volleyball team captured the attention of millions as they became Olympic champions in 1984. Beal, their controversial coach, goes behind the scenes and presents in a no-holds-barred fashion the trials, tribulations, and tough decisions that resulted in America's first men's Olympic volleyball medal. It is fascinating to find out how a struggling program evolved into an organization that made a mediocre team a world force. The poignant anecdotes and Beal's analysis of his players, together with 32 pages of action photos, serve to make this book exciting for the recreational reader, and there is enough technical substance to satisfy the aficionado.
