  I just found the online version of the entire book. It covers through the 1988 trials,  a good read.

It's a great read ... really a great value in understanding the personalities in the sport that some of us never had the chance to meet or work with.

This is a really good book.

I stumbled on this thread the other day and I'm glad I did.  I've been enjoying the book, and in light of current events by the IOC, the frequent references to the importance of the Olympic goal and the pursuit of the chance to represent the USA in the Olympics truly resonate.
