Great from the first page to the last. Thorpe's colossal athletic achievements propelled him to a nearly mythological status, which belied his post-Olympic false starts, bad marriages, and financial insecurity. Yet it is not Thorpe the myth, but Thorpe the flawed man that achieves, through his innate decency, a hard-won dignity. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare
