I finished this masterpiece today. And I don't take that word lightly. (It's like the word 'amazing'....totally overused, especially in reality tv) I'm not a big non-fiction gal, but this won me over. Reading The Boys in the Boat filled me with a sense of patriotism and admiration and I am confident it would do the same for you. Couple that with the descriptive portrayals of the Washington countryside, the stark coldness of a rising Nazi Germany, and the fighting spirit of Olympians and you have a winner. If you liked Unbroken, this book is for you. If you are into sports, this book is for you. Heck, if you can read this book is for you. Happy Reading!
