" The riveting true story-soon to be 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. A movie based on Mark's memoir, also titled Foxcatcher and directed by Bennett Miller of Moneyball and Capote fame-starring Channing Tatum, Steve Carell, and Mark Ruffalo-is scheduled to release nationally Fall 2014. 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"--… (mer)

I enjoyed this more than many others likely will, as I briefly knew Mark Schultz as "coach" and have seen a bit more of the depth of his character than is evident here. Loved the history of his career and the descriptions of agony and despair that all wrestlers suffer for the sport.

The book has little to do with the terrible movie of the same name that had only the brilliant Steve Carell to its credit. ( )

Poorly written by a whiny, arrogant man who I feel just used this book as an excuse to brag. Apparently, no one thought to edit it before publishing, either. Watch the movie, please, I'm begging you. ( )

Overall OK book, and good narrator, but it got really tiring listening to Mark Schultz boast of all his goodness and manliness. "Wrestling is a man's game... I won this... I'm very good at that..."... blah, blah, blah. The story about DuPont killing his brother, Dave, was very interesting but it was such a small portion of the book - maybe 2 chapters worth - that it really wasn't worth the whole book. Would have been good if there was some extra research put into he novel, but there wasn't - it was just Mark Schulz's memories. ( )

I did not finish this as it was so badly written. ( )
