    The exciting life and work of a Norwegian in the world of competitive rowing

    A slice of very important Norwegian sport history unfolds in Christopher Dodd’s latest book, Thor Nilsen: Rowing’s Global Coach (Independent Publishing Network). Nilsen seems largely unknown outside of the rowing community, which hopefully Dodd’s book, together with this review, written by Hear the Boat Sing editor Göran R. Buckhorn, will remedy. Our reviewer finds the book well-written and entertaining – which is true also of his own rich review.

    Impressive prosopography of “the most successful Olympic coach of all time”

    Hugh Matheson & Christopher Dodd portray Jurgen Grobler, former GDR, now British Rowing coach in More Power: The story of Jurgen Grobler, the most successful Olympic coach of all time (HarperCollins). Our reviewer is rowing history website “Hear The Boat Sing” editor Göran R Buckhorn, and he is doubly impressed – by Grobler’s unequalled feat and by the authors’ effort to present the man and this chosen vocation.
