Here at last is a book for women who love professional sports that is at once smart and saucy, deep and dishy. It’s not a book for women who want to impress their husbands or boyfriends. It’s not a book that gets all worked up over Title IX or Mia Hamm or the virtues of the WNBA. And it’s not a book with a pink cover.

In short, the joy and passion of following pro sports is too often eclipsed by an emphasis on factoids and statistics, and here, finally, is the antidote. GameFace: The Kick-Ass Guide for Women Who Love Pro Sports by Erica Boeke and Chris De Benedetti captures the action and drama of pro sports -- both on the field and off -- from scandals to tailgating and from thugs to heroes.
