Editorial Reviews

Ilene Cooper
Volleyball is big these days, but this book is not for girls who want to have a friendly game on the beach. Crisfield takes her volleyball seriously, and she wants her players to take it seriously as well. Everything a prospective player wants to know is included here: rules, techniques, and strategies, with plenty of diagrams so that readers can get a visual image of what is being described. The black-and-white photos are occasionally grainy and/or dark, but in the main, they support the text. A practical addition to sports shelves.
Booknews
