Reader recommendation: The Boys in the Boat

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

I've just finished reading The Boys in the Boat by David James Brown. It is a riveting account of nine crew members from the University of Washington and their epic quest for "Gold" at the 1936 Berlin Olympics.  It is a story of unbelievable hard work, dedication, humility, and the ultimate in team spirit.  I'll read it again!
