Editorial Reviews


The essays are solid, and they challenge the reader to think about and reflect on social constructs and their relationships with sport and society. (CHOICE)

This book offers new and heartfelt insights into the role of sports in our lives. In these pages, you'll meet coaches, players, parents and academics who will help you rethink your relationship with the games you love, and recommit to giving your children the best sports experiences possible. (Jeffrey Zaslow, coauthor of The Last Lecture)

Through these essays, written by a distinguished group of contributors, students can discover how the sports they take for granted can be a window into understanding the world in which they live. (Michael Oriard, Oregon State University)

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This book feels like an entire semester of an interesting, and even life-changing, college course, one I never would have thought to take, not being a big sports person. One of the most interesting books I've ever worked on, as an indexer (honestly). I thought it would be somewhat interesting, but it has greatly exceeded expectations in that regard. Am glad for the people who will get to read this.
