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.
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.
Rowing legend – slightly less as an athlete and more, and deservedly, as a leader of his beloved sport – Thomas “Thomi” Keller is portrayed in a new biography by David Owen, aptly entitled Thomi Keller: A Life In Sport (Independent Publishing Network). Göran R. Buckhorn of ‘Hear the Boat Sing’ fame is our knowledgeable reviewer, and he reallyenjoyed the read.
