More on More Power

12 April 2019

In July last year, Tim Koch reviewed Hugh Matheson and Chris Dodd’s biography More Power – The Story of Jürgen Grobler, The Most Successful Olympic Coach of All Time (Harper Collins, 2018). Tim wrapped up his review by saying:

Jürgen Grobler’s decision not to be involved in any biographical projects until he has finished coaching is interesting in that it suggests that he can actually envisage a time when he ceases to coach. Assuming that he has read More Power, perhaps he now regrets not giving his official blessing to this detailed (but never dull), technical (but never inaccessible) and affectionate (but never sentimental) tribute. It is a splendid achievement by the authors, Hugh Matheson and Chris Dodd, the literary equivalent of the pairing of Redgrave and Pinsent or Bond and Murray – More Power to their elbows!

Earlier today, HTBS editor Göran R Buckhorn had a review published on Matheson/Dodd’s book on idrottsforum.org, a web sports journal edited by Kjell Eriksson at the Department of Sport Sciences, Malmö University, Malmö, Sweden. The journal publishes articles and reviews in the Nordic languages and in English.
