This is the most valuable reference book in my rowing library. Actually, both of Dr. Nolte's books are extremely helpful to me as a coach and as a rower. The book is very well organized and easy to follow for athletes and the most accomplished coaches. A "must read' for anyone serious about getting faster in rowing.
