    A book that every rower should read, or anyone interested in the pursuit of excellence!

  2. says:

    This isn't a universal recommendation but I deeply enjoyed this book. The author's account of developing from a novice rower to a rowing-centric(/obsessed?) college student was perfectly on point. Any book that allows me to feel the emotion of being back in a boat, and relays just how rowing can not just overtake your life but become your life, is a winner for me. My heart fluttered a little with every tie into the foot stretcher.

    This book tells the tale of an olympic athlete who starts out as a scrawny high schooler who is unable to compete in athletics. Steve matures in college at an Ivy league school and discovers competitive rowing in the process. The reader is carried through his experiences in learning from his body and also competing on a world class level.

  4. says:

    Never got to row in college but wondered what it was like? This tells it.

  5. says:

    Excellent book about rowing and life.

  6. says:

    A good book that takes you into the mind of a rower. If you're a rower or curious about the sport this is a great book to start your reading search.

  7. says:

    Author is literate and mildly impressed with his own language. I detect sections of his college thesis sprinkled throughout (look for the Freud name-drops). Interesting coverage of the Yale team in any case.

  8. says:

    Very deep thinker

  9. says:

    It was interesting to read about Yale after reading so much Harvard (Red Rose Crew, The Challenge).

    I LOVED how Kiesling kept coming back to and kept describing in different ways the "pure joy of motion." I really relate to that and loved the way he wrote about it. (not for the writing, really, but just for the content.)

    The whole book completely changed in the last chapter and epilogue, in a super unexpected and interesting way. It became a book about humanity, about philosophy and athletics, and I feel like I need to read these last bits 20 more times in order to have all the thoughts I need to have about them.

    Things I reacted to from this book:
    - I want to watch Tony Johnson race in the 1968 M2-.
    - I want to read about Jerry Romano and his family's boatman tradition, and the concept of a "boatman" in the first place.
    - What is a second-order fulcrum, exactly?
    - I want to find out more about this Yale oatmeal story in 1870? Also apparently sliding seats started in 1871 but that seems so late?
    - Something cool about this book was how he let us in on his team's traditions. Gave me ideas for traditions to build with my own team. Like the "captain's log" at the training camp. I like the idea of traditions that are the responsibility of certain members of the team, passed down for "generations" of people who filled that role in the past...
    - "Being in shape was not my goal. My body was a tool to test the capabilities of my will."
    - Funny that EVERY ROWING BOOK EVER has a lengthy description of its boathouse, and of Henley-On-Thames.
    - Kelly for brickwork? Is that a funny thing I should know about ?

    I first read this book after my first year as a rower, but now I'm re-intrigued as the author is the guy who founded my favorite fruity-rooty magazine, Spirituality & Health.

    I have no idea if I liked this book simply because I could relate to so much of it or because it was well-constructed. Whatever it was, I enjoyed it, and I can still see (and smell) one of the scenes in my head, ten years later. That's gotta count for something.
