    I had heard a bit about Geoff Bodine’s desire to build a bobsled for America. This book gives the total back story to what I marvel as one of the greatest examples of American ingenuity and American pride. Loved the inception of Bodines dream and then the ultimate reward. Too bad the USOC and USBF were miserly in the support of a brilliant cause.

    Review of THE NIGHT TRAIN. I’m a voracious reader and writer myself. Mostly fiction but anytime someone recommends non-fiction, I’ll give it a look. I’ve never, to my memory, been on the inside of a non-fiction event worthy of a well-written book. Mike Brewster has not only captured the incredible odyssey of the USA Olympic bobsled team’s valiant effort winning a gold medal at the 2010 Olympic Games but he has painstakingly showed us “how”. I know many of the people involved in the Bo-Dyn Project to build an American-made bobsled and win an Olmypic medal… but I never had the “how” of such a massive undertaking so grippingly enunciated. Sports books generally explain who, when, and why…they never mention “how”…perhaps in other sports the “how” is to ethereal. The “how” in THE NIGHT TRAIN is a one-of-a-kind morphing of human commitment and American made technology. In THE NIGHT TRAIN Brewster carefully, brilliantly, by using the actual quotes of the creators and builders of THE NIGHT TRAIN shows us…doesn’t just tell us… HOW USA1 won the gold medal in 4-man bobsledding in the 2010 Olympic Games. Brewster’s book is a story of many buying in to one man’s vision. THE NIGHT TRAIN is a profoundly American-made story worth everyone’s attention.Peter Sellers/Durahm, NC

    Amazing Read and Story! 5 Star ReviewPosted by John Vester - BoDyn Bobsled Project CFOThis short book is a uniquely 21st century American and human saga of: audacity, focus, risk, danger, excellence, ingenuity, technology, and persistence, set against unbelievable odds and bad luck...with an eventual happy ending of the best possible type on the highest possible world stage. It unfolds slowly at first over years and then accelerates to literally stunning, mind-bending, split-second speed to its culmination at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Canada that all saw who watched these Games to the very end. This is how that winning story happened. The achievement that The Night Train represents is the assembly and achievement of a first-rate All-American team, both in front of the camera, and behind. Even though the stage for the The Night Train is an often overlooked sport in what is considered by some as a second-tier American sports arena, the lessons of The Night Train's accomplishments are world-class, timeless, and universal. It proves that the concepts of The American Dream and Yankee Ingenuity are still alive and well, if only one has the will and drive to see things through. Read this and be amazed, and finish with a smile on your face!
