Be advised, however, that several of the 20 chapter/articles are duplicates -- maybe as many as six. Mia Ham, Damn Yankee, Fidrych, Runners, Ali, and the Deep Divers. All great stories, and perhaps worth reading twice?
To cite just one outstanding example from this collection: If your eyes don't get watery when you read the story "Higher Education," about the unexpected black basketball coach at the small Mennonite school, you must lack a heart.
I have worked in the sports department of a major newspaper and have rubbed elbows with prominent sports journalists. But Gary Smith is my favorite writer of sports stories. I give this book my highest recommendation.
