Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'I read this book in one sitting, with great enjoyment and I will recommend it strongly to my students. It is a highly personalized primer on sport journalism and reflects the author’s passion for life, and for sportswriting, and his encyclopaedic knowledge of sport and its history. It draws on his long and wonderfully varied career as a journalist and is a ‘must’ read for any first year student on a sport journalism course. It is completed by a series of interviews with some of the best sport writers in the business.' - Steve Redhead, Professor of Sport and Media Cultures, The Chelsea School, Brighton, UK

'Whether it is researching the obscure statistical information on key combatants, filing copy for match reports or writing more considered pieces for magazines or books, this volume provides step-by-step guidelines and plenty of useful anecdotes and insights into how they are all achieved. Indeed, the book serves as an excellent reminder to its current practitioners of who they are writing for and why sport is such a beguiling and fascinating arena in which to work. ' Dr Richard Haynes, University of Stirling, UK
