SpeedReader Summary and Analysis of The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown
About The Boys in the Boat
This is the story of the University of Washington eight-oared crew who struggled to learn to work together to achieve something more incredible than they could have dreamed and, more particularly, the story of a poor boy named Joe who had to scrap to earn his way through college during the depths of the Great Depression.
It’s also the story of the beginnings of the second World War—of Hitler ordering the construction of the Berlin venues where the Olympic Games would take place and of his attempt to shield his increasing targeting of the Jews and other groups from the eyes of the world.
