What If

A Journey To and Through the World's Most Impossible Race

By Jason Thomas Caldwell


What If  is a series of captivating stories told along the chronology of the author’s young rowing career.  Along his ascent toward rowing history on earth’s most dramatic stage, Jason meets and is influenced by a wide variety of effective leaders. Coaches, teammates, and peers all contribute to this eccentric cast of characters as powerful in their ability to leverage human emotion, as they are real, driving the ones they lead toward impossible success.


Through these mentors, Jason is influenced into dramatic change that transforms him from the man he thought he was, to the influencer he needs to be, just in time to lead an impossible challenge – captaining a crew attempting to be the fastest team to row 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean.


Follow a true story of one man’s journey toward finding his authentic self, and realizing that great leadership is not gifted, but learned, by following the ones who came before you.
