really liked it

Warning! Only rowers need to read on, the rest can quit as I think they wont be able to fathom the true value of this book.
Lambert uses rowing as a metaphor for spiritual growth and succeeds in it. Sometimes a bit longwinded about it, but almost always spot on in his descriptions of what rowing is, not just in a physical sense, but more in a way of life and a philosophy.
Rowing is a unique and sometimes for outsiders a strange sport in which great physical exertions must be made (training 9 - 10 times a week) for seemingly little reward.
The sensation of flying over the water under your own (and your teams) power, being literally shackeled to your boat and mentally and moraly unable to stop rowing (you never quit) and the things the sport bring to its participants, is captured brilliantly by Craig Lambert
