First things first, this isn't a sugar-coated or censored account of Greg's rowing career in the way you might expect with a book timed for release at the Olympics. It's a highly detailed and searingly honest account, packed full of personal anecdotes and sporting analogies. I feel it's a must-read for anyone interested in rowing over the last 20 years and has plenty of raw emotion to interest a wider audience of sports fans.

The script language employed (Python) is no more difficult to grasp than HTML or JavaScript, and there is a comprehensive guide to the various commands available on the CD in the “Script Authoring” folder. Coupled with this are improved handling of web graphics, using web browser preview, and a nice new menu option for… Read more
