David Foster is arguably the greatest sporting champion the world has ever seen. In any sport. In any era of history.
With each blow of his woodchopping axe he produces more power than the world's greatest hammer throwers, with the balance and poise of a Nureyev, the agility of a gymnast and a delivery speed three times faster than that of Muhammad Ali in his prime. Which is why David Foster has been the world's champion axeman for an unprecedented twenty years.
A giant in his chosen sport, he is also a giant amongst men. Of immense stature and power, with appetites to match and an infectious lust for life, David is a living legend in the woodchopping world and a much-loved icon in his native Tasmania, yet he devotes almost as much time to supporting numerous and various charities as he does to his beloved woodchopping.
'The Power of Two' is a romp through David Foster's remarkable life and career, taking in blow-by-blow re-enactments of the big man's championship duels with axe and saw, his uncompromising views on life, his hilarious yarns... and some of the corniest one-liners you'll ever come across. Read it and you too will be both fan and friend of this big-hearted champion.
Liberally laced with cartoons, 'The Power of Two' is a book you should never ever lend out... because you'll never get it returned!
