    Daniel James Brown's robust book tells the story of the University of Washington's 1936 eight-oar crew and their epic quest for an Olympic gold medal, a team that transformed the sport and grabbed the attention of millions of Americans. The sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the boys defeated elite rivals first from eastern and British universities and finally the German crew rowing for Adolf Hitler in the Olympic games in Berlin, 1936.

    Where does The Boys in the Boat rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Best audio book I have listened to thus far (along with Born to Run).


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Boys in the Boat?

    The description of the relationships between the crew members and how they depend on each other and learn to trust each other. The description of "swing" in the eight oared boat.


    What about Edward Herrmann’s performance did you like?

    Very east listening. Good pace and expression.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I would spend more time running so I could listen more (I listen while running).


    Any additional comments?

    A must must must listen!
