New Book About The Crimsons

Talking about Susan Saint Sing, just the other day, she published another book on rowing, The Eight: A Season in the Tradition of Harvard Crew, which is about the 2008 Harvard University rowing crew, coached by legendary Harry Parker. So far I have only seen the book being sold on Amazon, where one of the reviewers, David Pitt, wrote: “the author does tend to lay it on a bit thick. In her descriptions of the rowers themselves, near-perfect physical and mental specimens, she often sounds like she’s writing about godlike figures from mythology, not flesh-and-blood human beings.” This seems to be a characteristic feature of this author. Still, I hope to be able to buy the book from my local bookshop very soon.
