Charles Moore offers a fascinating glimpse into his "race of a lifetime" -- both the excitement of an Olympic hurdles competition and an examination of the hurdles we all face in our lives. While the reader joins Moore on a sprint around the track at the 1952 Olympic Games, he recounts his 88 years filled with inspiring successes, as well as great challenges. But with each hurdle, Moore offers a lesson in how to overcome it: Get out of your own way. Find your stride. Run with purpose. Enjoy the journey. Sprint to the finish. As both a biography of a man named one of the "100 Golden Olympians" and a guide for self-improvement, One Hurdle At a Time will inspire kids to aim high and be their best selves.
