As a newcomer to the rowing scene, the authors really helped the reader realize what was at stake for these competitive rowers/athletes. This book detailed the start of women's competitive rowing with a mismatched group of egocentic, athletic, go-getters who had all made a place for themselves in their own rowing circles, but wanted the satisfaction of making it in the international sports arena. Thoroughly enjoyable in it's development of the team over time.....right down to the almost missed final race at the Henley!

The inspiring story of a group of women every bit as driven as any male athlete that sports can offer. This is their formative story. If you are looking for female role models look no further. And for the record, more than twenty years later, members of this group are still winning -- 2002 Head of Charles Masters 8 Women, crew Etas Unis, an impressive first place. Put this on your Must Have list.

I am a rower and this book helped me get a better understanding to how far women have come to make equality in sports...especially rowing which is a very demanding (both physically and mentally) sport. I recommend this book to anyone, both athlete and non-athlete. Even if you have no interest in becoming a rower (even though I do recommend it, its a great work out and very rewarding)....but this book has so many meaning and the achievements of the women in the book can be applied to other aspects of life! I personally couldn't put it down! It is a great book!

This was a really great book on rowing and on womens sports. As a participant in womens sports, it helped me realize how far we've come in fairness to women in the past few decades and also what some of these women had to go through to get us to where we are today. Anybody who knows rowing will love the book, but it's inspirational for everybody, whether male or female, athlete or non-athlete.
