    Best Sports Book Ever

    If you own this book, you will never need to look up a sport on Wikipedia ever again. It includes all of the more popular sports: soccer, baseball, basketball, etc., but it also contains the very obscure: pétanque, Eton Fives, sepak takraw. The book is divided into sections like winter sports, water sports, team sports, racquet sports, etc., which makes referring back to any sport easy. History, rules, and regulations are explained fully and in simple language, with very few, if any, gaps in information. The Olympic section is quite useful as a general overview but does not have sufficient information for someone, say, writing a report on a specific Olympiad. Overall, The Sports Book is useful and entertaining. It can be read as needed as a reference book, or from cover to cover. I would say it's a necessary addition to any personal library.
