In this easy to read account of the momentous achievements of twelve athletes, Rappoport examines and applauds those whose strengths lie not merely in talent and personal best, but rather asks the reader to look beyond the simple act of winning. The subject of these athletes lives is personal courage; courage to fight against wars they did not believe in, constructs informing them of their “place,” monetary manipulations, person illness, racism, and the death of a loved one.
