"Of all the remarkable athletes, none is more impressive [than] Sir Charles." (The New York Times)
Rick Reilly is better at print journalism than audio, in my opinion, because he comes off sounding like a jerk in this interview. Sir Charles, on the other hand, is revealed to be a smart, thoughtful and authentic gentleman --- oh yeah, and a fierce competitor. .
This book was written a while ago, but remains a classic because of Sir Charles' insight of the world. It's extra-special to hear Charles read it himself. I always appreciate Charles' honesty and willingness to say the truth, even if it's not what everyone wants to hear or even if it's not politically correct. Very few people in the public eye are that brave.
