Read Sean Wolf's review on the discussion board for Rowing Illustrated
"Dreams and hope are what the Olympics are made of. Andy has them and shares them and it is an eye opening experience to any master rower thinking of venturing their way onto an Olympic team."

"To know speed without fear you must immerse yourself in that terrible place and get comfortable with it."
--Andy Baxter

"...right from the get-go, Baxter's voice illuminates the narrative with the infectious enthusiasm of someone who loves both writing and the subject of his work. And he applies the same spirit (and remarkable amount of dedication) to his pursuit, with a healthy amount of humor mixed in."
