From School Library Journal
Grade 5-8-These uneven series entries provide a brief history of each sport, followed by basic information and explanations of rules and equipment. Golf is by far the more successful of the two, giving a clear presentation of the game for beginners. Diagrams explaining clubs, courses, and swings are useful and easy to understand. Tennis, on the other hand, is often confusing in both text and diagrams, especially the section on the grip line. In both volumes, the full-color outdoor photographs are plagued by shadows, often resulting in the young athletes being lost in darkness. Also, many of the photos are not captioned. Still, Golf may be useful for libraries needing material on the subject; take a pass on Tennis.George Delalis, Chicago Public Library
