Devastated after losing a critical race by nine-tenths of a second, Lewis went to the Olympic selection camp in hopes of earning his way into a national boat. He was not chosen. But Lewis was not to be denied, and his story is more than quest for the gold medal. It is about challenging convention, overcoming and working outside the system.

Even rarer, he tells a great story. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Want to Read saving…. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Other editions. Enlarge cover. Error rating book. Refresh and try again.

I understand the pain the Lewis goes through every race, the terrible yet amazing feeling in your gut at the start of a race. Not once was I bored. Lewis' struggle to stardom is truly an amazing story, showing the constant theme of never giving up.

No matter what, you should always put forth your full effort. At the end of a race, Lewis said that you should have "used up every ounce of energy in your body.

At the end of a race, Being a rower myself, I could truly relate to this book. At the end of a race, all I want to do is collapse and never move. I'm not much of a reader, but this book kept me interested. I couldn't put it down.

I read for hours straight and finished it in two days. I'm glad I read it and I recommend it not only to rowers, but everyone else as Lewis does a great job explaining the terms and the feelings that anyone can live in his shoes. Nov 27, Ajk rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Rowers. Shelves: non-fiction , favorites , funsies. Probably one of the principal works in teaching me not to complain and be stupid but rather to try hard and be awesome. Aug 05, Kellen Proctor rated it it was amazing.

Very rarely do you find and read a book that you were meant to read at a particular moment in time. For me this was that book and now was that time. It's funny because this was also one of those books that you "borrow" from a friend, only to let languish on your shelf for the better part of a decade. I recently discovered it after going through a box from college, and decided it was about time to read and send it back.

I couldn't have chosen a better time. The prose is simple. The author's messag Very rarely do you find and read a book that you were meant to read at a particular moment in time. The author's message is straightforward. If you've ever done any competitive athletics, you might understand what Brad Lewis is talking about.

But only if you've rowed, only if you've had your legs burning till numbness with 5 minutes of a 2k remaining, will you truly understand everything he is saying. I had goosebumps one too many times, and the conclusion, although known to anyone who has access to Wikipedia, still made me want to jump out of my chair and run down to the nearest Rowing Club.

I'm happy I had the opportunity to read this book, and share in Brad Lewis' mentality and success, and I hope that the original owner has the opportunity to again share this with someone else, who may need it too. Jan 07, Leslie Walker rated it really liked it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

To view it, click here. Brad is a weird dude. It was interesting to read about the events themselves -- WOW that actually happened? WOW he really had a lot of anger to fuel that! Things I reacted to from this book: - Interesting perspective of Harry Parker - It made me hunger for the feeling of rowing again, physically and psychologically - relatable pieces: the self-doubt, the failure while at the same time being great and doing incredible things, the burning desire to be the best, to do it as best as you can.

Dates and names and tidbits about the Way It Was. Nov 18, Richard Tzanov rated it it was amazing. This was recommended to me by an Olympic gold medal-winning rower friend, who said it was the best book for describing what it takes to be an elite athlete, and an endorsment doesn't get much better than that.

For the layman, it's an intense, adrenaline-heavy glimpse into the mental and physical requirements, sacrifices and expectations for succeeding at the top level and being an Olympic champion. There are lessons to take away for everyday life - not least the brilliant mantra of "Do it right, This was recommended to me by an Olympic gold medal-winning rower friend, who said it was the best book for describing what it takes to be an elite athlete, and an endorsment doesn't get much better than that.

There are lessons to take away for everyday life - not least the brilliant mantra of "Do it right, and finish it" - but really this just goes to show how elite athletes are a world apart; driven maniacs who achieve what others can't begin to fathom. Jul 06, Megan R rated it it was amazing. I know virtually nothing about rowing but loved this book.

May 27, Robert Cretu rated it it was amazing. Simply incredible. A story of struggle, of anger, of fighting against insurmountable odds. Even if you're not into rowing, the story is a great motivator. Sep 29, Ian rated it really liked it. Enjoyed this. Reading it made me find an extra gear on the water, which sucked, naturally. Dec 01, Greg rated it really liked it. An exciting read.

Start in the morning because you'll otherwise be up all night to finish it. Jan 04, Benjamin Woody rated it liked it. Interesting, but lets face it, Brad Lewis is no Halberstam. Jan 05, Charlotte Elizabeth rated it it was amazing. Inspiring and will re-read.

True athletic determinism. Sep 01, Matthew Pearson rated it it was amazing Shelves: what-i-have-read. One of my all time favorite books period.
