The Tao of Sportsby Bob Mitchell, Robert L. Mitchell
Sports today seems all to often to be poisoned by greed, incivility, and violence. Part philosophy, part poetry, part common sense, The Tao Of Sports is a spiritual roadmap to self-discovery and to understanding the great paradoxes of sports, athletics, and the Game: defeat and joy, struggle and serenity, anarchy and peace, fear and confidence. Witty, passionate, and thoughtful, The Tao Of Sports is a Zen guide, a coaching manual, an athlete's playbook, and a very engaging, informative reading for any fan who ever rooted for a player or a team.
