Sean CallahanAn interesting read overall, The Meaning of Sports occasionally bogs down in an unnecessary recounting of American sports history. The book's very existence presupposes that sports are important in American society, so there's no need to explain the significance of Babe Ruth's home runs or Michael Jordan's dunks. But when Mandelbaum is explaining how the games men play reflect the society we live in, he is at his best.
