A gritty story of commitment, self-discovery and the outer limits of human endurance. Hamish Bond and Eric Murray’s domination of world rowing is legendary. Double Olympic champions, world record holders and the winners of six World Championship titles in the coxless pair, they have been at the pinnacle of their sport since they captured their first title together in 2009. The Kiwi Pair shares the story of Bond and Murray’s unique partnership. Some would describe them as chalk and cheese, two contrasting personalities who nevertheless bring out the best in each other. Join them as they share the secrets to their success, their extreme training regime, the highs and lows of top level sport, and the extraordinary dedication it takes to be world-beating oarsmen. ‘This is a story of dedication, and that is a story that is not told often enough.’ — Sir Steve Redgrave

"Since competing at their first race meeting together in 2009, the powerhouse due of rowers Hamish Bond and Eric Murray have never been beaten. They are one of New Zealand's most successful sporting partnerships of all time. Affectionately known as the Kiwi Pair, Hamish Bond and Eric Murray are as dominant a team as we've ever seen. Hamish is considered the most technically proficient rower of a generation, while Murray is known for his huge engine, having set an indoor rowing world record for 18,728 metres in one hour. Yet behind the harmony on the water is an intriguing dynamic. They're two very different people: one an introvert, one an extrovert. One works part time for a share-broking firm, one is a registered marriage celebrant. They spend more time together than with their own wives, they finish each other's sentences, yet it's always been a love-hate relationship. 'When I first met Eric I thought he was an egotistical boofhead,' recalls Hamish. Switching from coaching legend Dick Tonks to their current coach Noel Donaldson was never going to be controversy-free either. Hamish and Eric certainly speak their minds, a candidness that is captured brilliantly with the help of broadcaster Scotty Stevenson in The Kiwi Pair. "

A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK OF THE YEAR "[A] poignant addition to the literature of moneyed glamour and its inevitable tarnish and decay…like something out of Fitzgerald or Waugh."—The New Yorker A parable for the new age of inequality: part family history, part detective story, part history of a vanishing class, and a vividly compelling exploration of the degree to which an inheritance—financial, cultural, genetic—conspired in one person's self-destruction. Land, houses, and money tumbled from one generation to the next on the eight-hundred-acre estate built by Scott's investment banker great-grandfather on Philadelphia's Main Line. There was an obligation to protect it, a license to enjoy it, a duty to pass it on—but it was impossible to know in advance how all that extraordinary good fortune might influence the choices made over a lifetime. In this warmly felt tale of an American family's fortunes, journalist Janny Scott excavates the rarefied world that shaped her charming, unknowable father, Robert Montgomery Scott, and provides an incisive look at the weight of inheritance, the tenacity of addiction, and the power of buried secrets. Some beneficiaries flourished, like Scott's grandmother, Helen Hope Scott, a socialite and celebrated horsewoman said to have inspired Katherine Hepburn's character in the play and Academy Award-winning film The Philadelphia Story. For others, including the author's father, she concludes, the impact was more complex. Bringing her journalistic talents, light touch, and crystalline prose to this powerful story of a child's search to understand a parent's puzzling end, Scott also raises questions about our new Gilded Age. New fortunes are being amassed, new estates are being born. Does anyone wonder how it will all play out, one hundred years hence?

Cycling Legends is a series of books detailing New Zealand's ten greatest cyclists. The first in the series tells the story of Phil O'Shea, the greatest of them all. Born in 1889, O'Shea's quiet, unassuming persona was juxtaposed by an extraordinary athletic ability. He won every track and road cycling title he set his mind to, during a time when competitive cycling was one of the world's most popular sports. He went to Australia and won their road championships three years straight. After 1923, he concentrated on track racing. Champions from around the world were imported for O'Shea to compete against in front of home crowds. After a long racing career he coached other champions, ran a cycle shop in Christchurch, and continued cycling until he was 90.
