Gathering the best of his columns from the past six years, the book is bound to be popular wherever rowers like to gather to share stories and laugh.

Dr Rowing , also known as Andy Anderson, saw his first crew race at age four and has been entranced with the sport ever since.
Discovering to his dismay that most oarsmen weigh more than 100 pounds, he turned to coxing in high school despite considering himself a “big guy.” At Trinity College he continued to cox despite being the tallest coxswain in the country and towering over three of the four strokes he shared the stern with.
He has coached gold medal boats at school, college, national, and world championships.
A teacher and coach at Groton School in Massachusetts for twenty-two years, he is married with two children WHO HAD BETTER NOT PLAY LACROSSE.
