Very true, George. I feel, in a sense, that it's not solely Peter's efforts (great though they are! Thank God for Peter!) that bring the recent results, but the fact that Marat has grown up at last and is ready to actually listen
to the coach's advice. That's what really made the difference, imo. Has Peter come, say, 2 years ago, he'd probably got fired after a few months, like everyone else.
