Also, everyone cheers about Title IX, the legislation that has helped provide equal opportunities for both genders in sports. Everyone that Ross talks to has no problem with Title IX until the very end of the book where negative issues are given a page. While Ross's book deserves to be read by young women who would like to enter sports, it glosses over more important issues.
