If you enjoy wrestling or reading about wrestling, it is a fascinating book, I imagine. Unfortunately, I was looking for a good true-crime book. This isn't it. Like the title says, Mark Schultz is writing about the murder of his brother, an Olympic gold medalist in wrestling. HE is also an Olympic wrestling gold medalist. Almost 3/4 of the book is about himself. Pages and pages of WHERE they wrestled,WHO they wrestled, HOW Much they won by, and on and on. By the time he gets to the details of the murder and trial of the murderer, there are only 10 pages left and then it was almost an afterthought.
