Going for the Gold: Apolo Anton Ohno Reviews
I bought this book a few months ago, shortly after it was published, mostly because I was obsessed with Apolo. I was a bit disappointed with the author's interpretation of Apolo's life and events. He made Apolo's life sound too much like a story, and I didn't really like the kind of informal language he used. Plus, I could tell that the author didn't really get to know Apolo personally. There wasn't really anything in the book about Apolo that I didn't know. Someone could have very easily gotten all of the information from the internet, newspapers, and magazines.
My friend ordered this book, as we are both obsessed Apolo fans. I was a bit dissapointed. It was stuff I already knew, and the way it explained things, it made it seem as if it were aimed at people younger than I am. But it had great photos, and overall it wasn't too bad.
I have to say that the real star
It's is a review of the story that his fans know well: however, it is a good book to read because it has a little bit of short track history as well as the biography on Apolo. It also has great pictures of Apolo.
