Whether he's flying up a half-pipe on his skateboard or whizzing through the air on a gold-medal snowboard run, Shaun White is one of the most exciting athletes in the world.

The harrowing, triumphant tale of a cyclist's journey to Olympic victory and the price he paid to achieve greatness. Marty Nothstein, one of the greatest cyclists of all time, arrived at the 1996 Olympic Games a heavy favorite. In the match sprint at the Atlanta Olympics, an event akin to prizefighting on a bicycle, he raced around a banked, oval track. Nothstein lost by a hair's width on the finish line and vowed to win the gold at the next Olympics, saying, "I didn't come here for a silver medal." In The Price of Gold, Marty Nothstein eloquently and honestly tracks his journey to the games in Sydney and the events that molded him into the world's fastest man on a bicycle—from his tough-love upbringing in a blue-collar, split home, to the "borderline outlaw" cast of cycling characters who helped guide him through the ranks. "I had to become the worst, to become the best," Nothstein says of the single-minded determination that turned him into a veritable monster on his bike, but often forced him to neglect his own family. Sure to become a sports classic, this book will be published in time for the 2012 Olympics, when the world's eyes are trained on London and international conversation will turn to the question of what it takes to win the gold.

Without exception, the athletes who contributed these chapters have addressed groups, large and small, in their collective mission to share the power and relevance of their Olympic experiences. The message hidden just beneath the surface of each chapter is that Olympic champions are not extraordinary people, rather, they are ordinary people who merely have been able to accomplish extraordinary things in the area of life that matters most to each of them. Within each of us lies a dormant form of an Olympian, waiting to be awakened.
