What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Pick your metaphor—Guttmann hits it out of the park, slam-dunks it, nails the hat trick with this innovative book.—Carlin Romano, Philadelphia Inquirer



The whole tone of work on American sport, at least at the higher levels of endeavor, has, with this series of essays by Guttmann, been permanently elevated.—American Historical Review
