When I first glanced at the book I didn't think it would be anything all that special, then before I knew it, I was turning to one of my favorite figures, then another and yet another. Most times, I will flip through a book or SI Magazine, Read the bold type at the beginning of a colum or story of some sort and if it couldn't keep my attention after a just a few lines then I would move on to the next page. Two words that I would use sum up how I feel about this book, Entertaining & Informative. That kind of combination is rare to find these days. Filled with so many things that people may very well not know about their favorite team or player. Entertainingly informative. Love It!!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

When I was a young photog, Sports Illustrated was the bible (as was National Geographic,) and this book brings those old school images back to life. When chromes were king, the images produced were the building blocks of sports photos as we know them. To see them brought back to life, with the explanations of how they were produced, makes me yearn for the "life's bright colors of Kodachrome."(RIP)
These iconic slides described the history of sport as we know it, and the comments about the shooters and how they came to be.
I use it in my classroom to jump start my students and even myself. I have one of my film cameras loaded with slide film as we speak.
A must for every serious photog for their coffee table.
