'TRIALS IN YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO' is a wonderful book written by Wolfgang Cooper. Although a short story, 'TRAILS' is chock full of more fervor, passion and intensity than a lot of books that run 500 plus pages. For anyone who grew up in the seventies, and remembers big cars, big industry, down and dirty local rock and roll bands and all the effort it took to win over family and friends when you were 18 years old, this is definitely a book that will get your blood pumping. Teenagers of today will also enjoy the story. Cooper has an interesting writing style that is easy to follow. I blew through it one weekend.Enjoy!

This book, 'Trials In Youngstown, Ohio,' really got to me. I grew up in a small town and played high school football. I remember firends and family telling me I was to small and to slow to make the team. But I persevered and eventually earned my high school letter. I now work in an automotive plant. What I like about this book is that it proves that a person doesn't have to be big-shot politician or movie mogul to be a winner in life. The main character in the story, Matt Burns, is constantly put-down by family and friends for not being a high flier in scholastics or sports, but he never gives up. This book reminded me of the movie 'Rudy,' about the steel town kid who made the Notre Dame football team against all odds. I've read some of Wolfgang Coopers other books. He has a brief, spare way of writing that makes reading a pleasure and not a chore. I highly recommend this book, both for parents and for their children
