Given the contrarian nature of much of my content, I don’t expect everyone to like me or my work. However, using half-truths, outright lies and personal attacks to discredit me or anyone else with the temerity to go against the grain is not cool. Today, I sink my teeth into the two 1-star reviews of The Great Cholesterol Con that appear on Amazon.com.
Speed Trap was written by one of the best sprint coaches ever: Charlie Francis. It’s a riveting read that relives Ben Johnson’s fairy tale rise to athletic stardom, followed by his devastating downfall after testing positive for an anabolic steroid at the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Much more than just an enthralling biography, the book also doubles as an outstanding instruction manual on the the art and science of sprint training.
