Overview

Yankees vs. Red Sox. Duke vs. North Carolina. Cowboys vs. Redskins. Across sports, genders, coasts, and levels of play, impassioned fans beget rivalries, and rivalries bring down the house, stadium, court, and rink every time a match-up is staged. From Ohio State football coach Woody Hayes ordering his team to go for two when they'd already shattered Michigan—because, in his words, "they wouldn't let us go for three"—to the in-your-face rhymes boxer Muhammed Ali composed for chief rival Joe Frazier, Greatest Sports Rivalries brings together highlights, statistics, and stories from twenty-five of the most notable and entertaining face-offs the athletic world has ever seen.

Though the players range from ice skaters to racehorses, from cycling powerhouses to rotund golfers, the fan intensity behind the rivalries remains constant, and the quiet respect that well matched teams, coaches, and individual athletes often develop for one another makes these competitions great. With spectacular color photos of sports' legendary moments, packed stat boxes, and play-by-play accounts of nail-biting victories and unexpected heartbreaks, sportswriters James Buckley Jr. and David Fischer take us on a breakneck tour of sports in America, teaching us that overall records don't matter . . . the bragging rights do.

James Buckley Jr. has written numerous books on sports for adults and young readers, including Perfect: The Story of Baseball's 17 Perfect Games; Baseball: A Celebration; Classic Ballparks; and Sports Immortals. Once a writer and editor for Sports Illustrated and NFL Publishing, Buckley now operates the Shoreline Publishing Group, a book producer specializing in sports books. He lives in Santa Barbara, California, with his wife Patty and children Conor and Katie.

David Fischer is the author of The New York Times' Sports of the Times and The 50 Coolest Jobs in Sports. He has written for the New York Times and Sports Illustrated for Kids, and has worked for NBC Sports, Sports Illustrated, and The National Sports Daily. He lives in northern New Jersey with his wife Carolyn and children Rachel and Jack.
