Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"A very honest book - not in a sensational way - but more revealing in the realities of training, competing and racing ... Extremely enjoyable" (Daily Telegraph)

"A good book, well-written, informative, engaging, revealing ... The insights Pinsent brings to his sport are worth the price alone" (Sunday Times)

"The most insightful of the post-Olympic books in which the super-human rower demonstrates a reflectiveness that is rare among sportspeople ... He writes superbly" (Independent on Sunday)

"Pinsent tells his own story in A Lifetime in a Race, and tells it truthfully ...This is another tale that rips off the page and says big, powerful things about sport, and about the frailties of big, powerful men" (The Times)

"A gripping account of his life and most recent times. He deftly conveys the sheer effort needed to survive the brutal training regimes in top-level rowing, as well as the obsessive intensity that brought him his Olympic haul" (Independent)

Présentation de l'éditeur

With his last-gasp victory as part of the Great British coxless four team at the Athens Olympics, Matthew Pinsent clinched an historic fourth Olympic Gold to add to the three already won with his legendary rowing partner Steve Redgrave. In an uniquely exciting and evocative autobiography, Pinsent interweaves the build-up to Athens 2004 with the extraordinary story of his career and unforgettable partnership with Redgrave. Plucked from obscurity at the age of 20, told to partner his hero, and trained to within an inch of his life, Pinsent's story is uniquely revealing about what it takes to be a champion and the mixed blessings of success. Culminating with a nail-biting final chapter detailing the team's extraordinary victory in Athens in blow-by-blow detail, A Lifetime in a Race is a sports book in a different mould.

Amazing 23 août 2006
Par Joseph M. Deleo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book isn't a biography at all. It covers Pinsent's career of rowing from his teenage years where he first began to his 4th Olympic Gold. Considering it was a decent sized book I got through it in about a week or so. A very enjoyable read and something rowers will love. Right up there with Assault and the Amateurs.

Finished this in about three days. Could hardly put it down. Interesting structure that combines chapters on Pinsent's career, from boyhood to man, with diary entries covering the year or so leading up to the 2004 Olympics. Not sure it works as well as the storylines converge, but overall still effective. Pinsent's insights into the development and growth of the GB rowing program, sponsorships, his relationships with Redgrave (and other rowers), and other great details about what it takes and what it is like to row at a world-class level through four Olympics makes this, in sum, one of the best books on rowing I have read, though I am sad to admit that the field of competition is neither broad nor deep. All the same, I'd put this on the must-read list of rowing books, up there with The Amateurs, The Shell Game, Boys in the Boat, and possibly Assault on Lake Casitas (though I can't say that for sure until I read that one).

I made the mistake of reading Boys in the Boat first. It was so well written that when I purchased A Lifetime in a Race to follow up on my interests the quality of the book only held my attention for about 30 pages and I couldn't stand to read any more.

From a rower's perspective, not so great 4 novembre 2007
Par J. Burns Jr. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
There are some very good segments in Matthew Pinsent's autobiography, A Lifetime in Race, particularly his rower's-eye-view of the Olympics. Unfortunately, while these bits made for an interesting excerpt in Rowing News, they don't really justify a whole book. The pacing and style of the prose bothered me enough that I probably wouldn't recommend the book to someone who didn't already have an interest in British Olympic Rowing.
