I was expecting a lot more written content though what was written was very good. It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words and with all the pictures in the book, you certainly do get a good insight into the life of Crowie. He is class act, much like so many of the other tri-athletes.

“Like most of us, Shane Niemeyer likes to test his limits. THE HURT ARTIST gave me an entirely different perspective on just how far he fell before becoming an Ironman. His life story deserves to be told and demonstrates what perseverance can do for anyone no matter how hopeless they may feel their situation is. You may never compete in an Ironman Triathlon, but Shane shows how anyone can overcome any obstacle and pursue their dream with passion.” 0 likes
