"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Grade 3-7-- Four gold medals and one silver in his three Olympics are described along with the struggles and achievements of diver Greg Louganis. Louganis' shyness, stuttering, reading problems, and distractions, along with his determination and love for diving, are clearly presented in narrative form. Black-and-white photographs and drawings of good quality dot the text. Louganis' desire to please himself, his coach, and his country appears to have been a driving force in his life. Readers interested in sports or the Olympic events will find this book enjoyable and informative. --Janice C. Hayes, Middle Tennessee State Univ . , Murfreesboro
