Book of the Month: The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics

Out of the depths of the Great Depression comes this incredible true story about beating the odds and finding hope in desperate times. From the beginning of the book, The Boys in the Boat captured my imagination as I imagined myself in Joe Rantz's shoes.

A teenager without a family and dim prospects for a better life, this story follows Joe as he goes from being a nobody to finding a new family on the boat, taking the Gold at the Olympics, and defeating the Nazis on their own turf in Berlin.

With over 20,000 five star reviews, I know you'll enjoy this one, and I believe there are some deep lessons about life to be gleaned from it as well. Read it, then come back and let's discuss your takeaways on a live call! Click here to register for the live discussion.
