There are a lot of ways to skin a cat - a lot of ways to make the U.S. Olympic rowing team - a lot of ways to win a gold medal at the Olympic Games. Assault on Lake Casitas describes how I went about doing all these things, minus the cat skinning. If you're working to accomplish a tough goal - perhaps trying to earn a place in the novice 8+ at your school - then Assault might provide you with some new ideas, some cool tools, some fresh inspiration. And if you're looking for a good book to read, Assault can provide that too.
Brad gives an overview of the book:
I've self published several books... the most widely read is called 'Assault on Lake Casitas', which is about competing in the Olympic Games in the sport of sculling.
Most recently I self-published a very thin book about hiking the John Muir Trail. More info on both...
