Format: Hardcover
This is an updated version of the original Ultimate Book of Sports Lists, published more than 10 years ago. Fortunately, the authors have changed little, since the old book was the best sports book I have ever read. Don't be fooled by the title; this is no mere reference book. Instead, it contains hundreds of anecdotes -- the longest-lasting tennis volley ever recorded, the soccer game that sparked an international armed conflict, the first gay football player to come out, etc., all grouped into categories. I cannot imagine anyone being disappointed by this book.

Format: Hardcover
The Ultimate Book of Sports Lists is the ultimate book of sports lists!!!

If you like sports, you will absolutely love this listing

of sports anecdotes, quotations, statistics, reocrds, etc. -

it is an absolute masterpiece for the sports aficionado!!!

It is a book you will find overwhelmingly impressive for

all the categorizations which appropriately list relevant facts

and statistics for the most popular to the most obscure sports

known to man - the listings will leave you breathless and

speechless, and cause you to wonder how such a compendium could

have been collected and presented in such a readable way.

Like the Book of Lists that first astounded the American

public when it was published several years ago, this book of

sports lists is the sports fans' Book of Lists, and that's

putting it mildly.

So, if you love sports, do yourself a favor and get yourself

a copy of this book and enjoy how entertaining sports listings

and sports trivia can be - it's a masterpiece!
