Success and Failure

Last night saw the UK launch of Ugo Riccarelli’s work Coppi’s Angel in an English translation by Michael McDermott.  Historical fact is blended with Riccarrelli’s empathy for sporting figures who achieved great success and true, pre-spin-doctor, hero status despite failure and human weakness.  Vision and a refusal to give up or just settle for the ordinary despite in many ways being just that, ordinary, is what led to their success.  The next time an educational assignment gets you down, just keep your eye on the goal, dig a bit deeper and keep going.  For a copy of the book, contact Middlesex University Press.
