Boys in the Boat

Reasons to Read This Book
  1. You are tired of hearing them called the greatest generation but not knowing why they are called that.
  2. There needs to be a book that makes sense of what happened to this country.
  3. Reading about Americans who pulled their weight, weren't looking for a handout, and yet creating greatness appeals to you.
  4. It amazes you how Hitler got away with so much horror, and you want to know how that happened.
  5. You love a good, true story of the good guys winning.
Reasons to Not Read This Book
  1. American stories of greatness bores you.
  2. You think Hitler got a bad rap and don't want to read the truth about him and his regime.
  3. Hard work and integrity nauseate you. 
  4. You are Anti American.
