Zero Regrets by Apolo Anton Ohno

I'm in the middle of reading Zero Regrets (Simon and Schuster, 2010) by Apolo Anton Ohno. The writing style is a bit different than many books but it does read like Apolo Ohno talks when he is doing media interviews. Ohno goes into his background including a few passages about his absent mother and how influential his father has been in his life.

He also writes about his troubling start in speed skating and how much he was afraid to fail plus he details some of his teenage years hanging out with some not so savory and counterproductive street kids. So far, there are some really nice phrases about always doing things in one's life that will always produce zero regrets. Ohno talks about doing whatever one selects to do with their live by giving it 100 percent.

So far the book is really good and Ohno really is motivating. Hopefully the remainder of the book will be just as good.
