Críticas: An inspirational and timely memoir of an Olympic athlete who was "in it to win it" and lost

An honest, intimate look at the dark reality of top-level competition

A story that reveals how to develop a healthy outlook on competition--and life

"["Chariots and Horses"] is not a handbook in the art of coaching rowing, but it has many different levels about how to handle failures (yours and others), how to recognise and overcome your demons, and how to inspire and give young people a healthy approach to competing and keeping the spirit high even though they are not the first ones to cross the finish line." --Goran R. Buckhorn, "Hear the Boat Sing" blog

"It is a deeply personal account of high-performance athletic competition and the long journey to putting that experience in perspective . . . This is a book that should be read by coaches and competitors regardless of their sport--in fact, it will be valuable for anyone who has to confront the challenge of setting goals, staying motivated and inspiring high-performance athletes to reach their highest potential." --Justin Longo



"Jason Dorland beat himself up for years after losing his Olympic race and he doesn't want to see others do the same. --Neil Stevens, The Canadian Press



"Not your typical story about a young man finding his way through sport and his Olympic dream. Inspiring." --Tricia Smith, Olympic rower



"It takes courage to examine the anatomy of a failure and use it as the seed of greatness and fulfilment. [Jason's story] is not only honourable, but highly inspirational." --Hayley Wickenheiser, Olympic Champion, women's hockey



"Jason Dorland has written a deeply personal and brutally honest account of the highs and lows of growing up within a 'winning-is-everything' sport culture. His journey from athlete to Olympian to retiree to coach is intense and fascinating. This transformative story of one man's struggle to conquer his own demons in order to better the lives of those he teaches is as remarkable as it is inspiring." --Mark Tewksbury, Olympic Champion, swimming



Jason Dorland has written an insightful and significant book. As in Shakespeare, the wisdom of the book is revealed in the conversations or asides between him and Robyn Meagher. Robyn, an Olympic runner, provides Jason his awakening, teaching the world-class rower to get a grip. To pull together is, really, to pull oneself together. --Ron MacLean, Hockey Night in Canada



"I would encourage anyone who feels the need to own every rowing book like I do, to go out and purchase a copy [of Chariots and Horses] . . . I tore through the first 100 pages without taking a break and only stopped to allow myself to read some other books before I went to bed." --Eric Lamontagne, Be Smart. Row Hard.



Dorland gets it. Winning is only one part of the sporting adventure. His captivating story will empower you to use sport as a catalyst for the next generation. --Adam Kreek, Olympic Champion, rowing
