Editorial Reviews

Review

“These intrepid scribes who put down their pens and laptops and entered the arena may have gotten pummeled, pinned, passed, and pasted. But, man, did they capture the experience. Inside the Ropes is as rich a collection of writing—not just sportswriting, but writing writing—as one could hope to find.”—L. Jon Wertheim, senior writer for Sports Illustrated and author of Running the Table: The Legend of Kid Delicious, the Last Great American Pool Hustler
(L. Jon Wertheim 2008-01-29)

“As a former pro athlete turned head football coach, I can vouch that Inside the Ropes has the best feel for sport I've ever read, written by the best sportswriters in America.”—Chuck Long, head football coach for San Diego State University and former NFL quarterback
(Chuck Long 2008-01-29)
