Reviews
"The strength of Boycott is in the Caraccioli brothers' methodical presentation of the complicated events leading up to boycott." --Wall Street Journal
"The book also serves as a poignant tribute to hundreds of American athletes caught in the middle of a geopolitical chess match between superpowers." --Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
"Uniquely and poignantly captures the impact of American athletes denied the opportunity to compete in the Olympic Games. This book . . . becomes their belated, but deserved, Olympic salute." --Dick Enberg, CBS Sports
"It is reassuring that the Caracciolis decided to tackle this story about America and American athletes in a challenging time." --Anita DeFrantz, International Olympic Committee
"In a brief foreword, former Vice President Walter Mondale apologizes to all athletes denied the opportunity to compete in the 1980 Olympics; it's the first of Boycott's many poignant moments." --Athletic Business
