Good Summer Reading recommendation...

I am currently reading the book listed below about former Iowa wrestling coach, Dan Gable. I am always interested in what makes champions tick no matter the sport. Gable for those of you that have never heard of him won an Olympic gold medal in the '72 Olympics in freestyle wrestling. Following his dominating victory, Gable went on to coach the Iowa Hawkeyes and set coaching standards that will be hard to duplicate. His teams won the Big 10 titles in every season that he coached. They also won 16 NCAA titles (remarkable number for one coach in any sport). Whether you are a wrestling fan or not, it's a good read and highly recommended.
