Publisher's Summary

The riveting true story - soon to be the subject of a high-profile film - of Olympic wrestling gold medal-winning brothers Mark Schultz and Dave Schultz and their fatal relationship with the eccentric John du Pont, heir to the du Pont dynasty.
On January 26, 1996, Dave Schultz, Olympic gold medal winner and wrestling golden boy, was shot three times by du Pont family heir John E. du Pont at the famed Foxcatcher Farms estate in Pennsylvania. Following the murder, there was a tense standoff when du Pont barricaded himself in his home for two days before he was finally captured.
Foxcatcher is gold medal winner Mark Schultz's memoir, revealing what made him and his brother champion and what brought them to Foxcatcher Farms. It's a vivid portrait of the complex relationship he and his brother had with du Pont, a man whose catastrophic break from reality led to tragedy. No one knows the inside story of what went on behind the scenes at Foxcatcher Farms - and inside John du Pont's head - better than Mark Schultz.
The incredible true story of these championship-winning brothers and the wealthiest convicted murderer of all time will be making headlines this fall, and Mark's memoir will reveal the true inside story.

The book title is misleading

I listen to several books a week and this was terrible. This book is not about the murder. It's a very selfish and narcissistic view of Mark's life. It should have been titled "Learn how to wrestle while I wine about my life". UGH!! What happened to Dave is terrible and sad.

I bought the book because I saw the movie. The movie was definitely most interesting. This book feels like Mark's platform for a pity party. "It's everyone else's fault I'm not happy". "Everything is John DuPont's fault" Reality check Mr. Schultz, we would all love to have someone support us while we hone our skills....Really??? I will never get those 8 hours back from listening to this book I hope a spare another listeners time. :(

Hard Listen

This is a story that has interesting things to say, but is not written well. There are slabg words, meandering thoughts, and short non-descriptive sentences that chop everything up.
