Read why this small Vermont town has produced more Olympic athletes per capita than any other town in the nation. The author interviews past Olympians who were raised in Norwich and the people who work, teach, and coach these kids. She discovers that these gifted athletes were encouraged to experience multiple sports, participate in activities in which they might enjoy, but not excel in and how the hands-off approach to parenting has worked not only in sports, but in fostering future community leaders. A must read for athletes, coaches, and, especially, parents. ~ Reviewed by Suzanne Rice
