Reader remarks about Pete Vordenberg's "Momentum"

 

  The marvel of Vordenberg's book is that it appeals to the non-skier as well as to ski racers past and present. Healthy doses of self-revelation, touches of On The Road, and remarkable insights make this a unique book. It's supposedly about skiing--but it's more about life and seizing it." --Bob Woodward, veteran ski journalist

 

  "Vordenberg's tale of seeking his Olympic dream, and in the process learning about life, is the most compelling athlete's book I've ever read. It may not have the drama of Lance's return from near death, but it's got as much guts and and more real life."  --Ken Salzberg (5 stars Amazon)

 

  "Peter Vordenberg has capped an incredible career with what I believe will be one of the best sports books ever written." --Ernie Brumbaugh, pres. Michigan Cup racing series, at NordicSkiRacer.com

 

  "...While I think McKibben is just a little bit more polished, I found Pete's book much more compelling. Pete is the real thing. Nothing came easy (except maybe the talent from his family), real work, real doubts, real development and growth, real skiing."  --Ken Salzberg

 

  "A page-turner! For anyone who has had even a touch of Olympic Fever the story is contagious. Vordenberg puts you there. Right in his sweaty polypro's. This is spot-on, creative non-fiction. Go along for the dream. It's a Cera-Fast read."  --"Tony" Hartmann (5 stars Amazon)

 

   "I give it the no-question-about-it Two Thumbs Up Award. The focus is on training, that makes it different, and very fun for ski racers to read. If it snows, go skiing. 'Til then, read Pete's book. I wish it never ended!"  --Dell Todd

 

  "I thought it was fantastic! I think the experiences he has had will make him a terrific coach. The book's emphasis on setting goals, discipline, perseverance and focus, can be applied to any endeavor."  --Corlet Graff
