"A fitting tribute ... the amount of detail is extraordinary ... fascinating, deeply researched, affectionately written."


"Hadgraft has made a lasting contribution to athletics history and literature over the past 15 years ... This is a comprehensive record of Wooderson's remarkable career, at a reasonable price, and is by no means a hagiography."
