Mind Over Water: Lessons on Life from the Art of Rowing by Craig Lambert
Mind Over Water: Lessons on Life from the Art of Rowing

Maybe because I LOVE rowing, am already a good rower, or maybe because I can only take a few clich? at a time, but either way, I just couldn't finish the book which thought too highly of itself. Yes, rowing can be very insightful and there are many analogies one could apply from rowing to life, but they already made those posters.

Well, when the other rowers in my community read this (and figure out this was me), I'm sure I'll get an "earfull," but this is just MY opinion, you are welcome to yours.
