I plan to listen to the book at least several more times in the coming months. The story weaves together the elements of the Great Depression, Nazism on the rise, the 1936 Berlin Games, the science and ART of rowing, etc. The real deal closer for me is the Edward Hermann narration. No one is better than Edward Hermann and this is the perfect book for him.
George Pocock - a fascinating man that understood men, craftsmanship, and the art of rowing.
No. But I cannot believe it can get any better than this.
The Boys in the Boat: A Story of Unbroken Spirit and the 1936 Olympics
As good as it gets on Audible.
