Amidon's audiobook covers a wide range of topics--from mythological figures to present-day athletes and the issues surrounding them: amateurism, politics, drugs, ego, and more. Narrator Ron Butler sticks to a steady lecturing tone without imitations or varying pitches. Since the book is a historical account and not a dialogue-driven work, Butler's straightforward approach works well. Both author and narrator lay out a cultural history of a topic that has been part of civilization for centuries. Through clear diction, Butler helps show the vital connection we have to the athlete.
