STUCK IN A corporate job rut and faced with an unraveling marriage at the age of thirty-six, Roz Savage sat down one night and wrote two versions of her own obituary -- the one that she wanted and the one she was heading for. They were very different. She realized that if she carried on as she was, she wasn't going to end up with the life she wanted. So she turned her back on an eleven-year career as a management consultant to reinvent herself as a woman of adventure. She invested her life's savings in an ocean rowboat and became the first solo woman ever to enter the Atlantic Rowing Race. Her 3,000-mile trial by sea became the challenge of a lifetime. Of the twenty-six crews that set out from La Gomera, six capsized or sank and didn't make it to the finish line in Antigua. There were times when she thought she had hit her absolute limit, but alone in the middle of the ocean, she had no choice but to find the strength to carry on. In Rowing the Atlantic we are brought on board when Savage's dreams of feasts are nourished by yet another freeze-dried meal. When her gloves wear through to her blistered hands. When her headlamp is the only light on a pitch-black night ocean that extends indefinitely in all directions. When, one by one, all four of her oars break. When her satellite communication fails. Stroke by stroke, Savage discovers there is so much more to life than a fancy sports car and a power-suit job. Flashing back to key moments from her life before rowing, she describes the bolt from the blue that first inspired her to row across oceans and how this crazy idea evolved from a dream into a tendinitis-inducing reality. And finally, Savage discovers in the rough waters of the Atlantic the kind of happiness we all hope to find.

Australians are often said to be obsessed with sport, and playing and watching sport have long been regarded as national pastimes. Sport in Australian History is an innovative and exciting study of the political, economic, social, and cultural role that sport has played in Australia since European settlement. The authors investigate many of the myths surrounding the place of sport in Australian culture. They demonstrate that, although Australians are far from unique in their fascination with sport, a historical study of their involvement -- both as participants and spectators -- can nevertheless tell us a great deal about Australian society. Indeed, in many respects, sport can be viewed as a microcosm of wider society, reflecting, for example, attitudes to violence and gender relations. Taking a thematic approach, the authors dwell on the values, ideas, and myths that have shaped the nations sporting culture over time. The book focuses on issues such as the sports industry; the place of women; the participation of groups not traditionally involved in mainstream Australian sport (such as Aborigines, the disabled, ethnic groups, and the aged); the influence of science and technology; and controversial topics such as violence, drugs, corruption, the law, and the role of childrens sport. Readers interested in sport, culture, recreation, and history will find much to enjoy in this challenging and thought-provoking book.
