The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics
Apr 27, 2014
I love a good non-fiction history book and this one did not disappoint! I had no idea that rowing was the second most popular Olympic sport, just behind track and field, in 1936. I can't say I have ever watched it, but I know I will now! Well written and impeccably researched. You just new these guys would be successful in whatever they did, in life, based on their commitment to getting the job done until such tough circumstances.
