Rod Gilmour's book is a well-written account of Olympic Gold success in an era where the players were distinctly amateur. It is well-researched, and the reader gets an insight into the lead up to Seoul, with players sharing their stories and outlining clearly the sacrifices they made in pursuit of that gold medal. The author paints a picture as dramatic as any of the video recordings still available, with Barry 'frankly who cares' Davies writing the foreword. It offers an insight into single-minded sports management, with many reflections on the impact of the late Roger Self. An excellent read.
