Good books on rowing are few and far between. If you like autobiographies Pinsent's and Foster's are both good. Murray and Bond's new book is on par with the latter two and very much deserves five stars.
It's an engaging read that moves along at a decent pace and does an insightful job of showing the reader the life including challenges of a an elite endurance athlete. Both men come across as interesting characters, albeit with very different personalities and it is fascinating to see how together they overcame some fairly substantial disappointments to form what is arguably the greatest rowing crew of all time.
The relationships with their various coaches are also covered and it is interesting to see how they achieved the results they did under the different styles. Two very minor criticisms. The finals chapters were written shortly after the Rio final and as such don't provide much in the way of retrospective observation, and as a rowing fan it would have been really interesting to have seen a table of their 2k erg times through the years.
Small points though in what is a very good book. Was this review helpful to you? So Eric and Hamish, having just won their second pair of Olympic gold medals in Rio, have just released a biography about their lives. Given the timing, I really wasn't expecting much. But this is really an excellent book, very well written and very compelling in the detailed story that it tells.
These supremely talented rowers have managed to be so successful as a pair for a number of reasons, in no small part due to their unrelenting commitment to practicing and perfecting their techniques and endurance, day after day, year after year.
Rare insights into two remarkable athletes' careers Worth the read for anyone thinking about doing something audacious. By Sippican on July 25, Written for a rowing enthusiast, but with that caveat, weel written, fast paced, and some learnings for all of us. By Tim Wong on April 21, Could not set it down! By Susan Condon on January 29, Awesome to read about these fantastic kiwi rowers and the sacrifices and dedication that they had to do to get their rewards, medals so well deserved and all the benefits that come along with that, simply awesome and inspiring.
By nicky knowles on October 6, Great insight into a world where these Two men that are polar opposites, fantastic achievement was so proud of them, now the question remains what next for these individuals, just how will they assimilate into a normal life?
