Each of these short formulaic biographies is easy to read and gives a quick look at the personal struggles these athletes faced to become world class. Sidebars provide additional personal and professional information. Color and black-and-white photographs illustrate the book, which includes profiles of Gail Devers, George Foreman, Florence Griffith Joyner, Sugar Ray Leonard, Debi Thomas, and eight others. Ind.
