Great book, unbiased and thorough. Good information from the inception of the sport to the near present, and not just about the Americans.
Huge issues to name pronunciation though! It's spelled Martha but we all know it's pronounced Marta... and sometimes name pronunciations would change from sentence to sentence, like Iordache and Peszek. Real killer on the ears. But I wouldn't let that deter you from listening... it's really a good read, just be prepared.

Meyer's history of gymnastic's iconic score and the development of the sport in the US will change any lay viewer into a super fan. The insightful book covers everything from the first ten to the NCAA collegiate system. I've admittedly listened to the book three times now, but find it fresh and entertaining each time. With the exception of some mispronunciation of names, the performance is stellar. I would highly recommend for anyone, regardless of their gymnastics background.
