Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is for anyone who has ever enjoyed watching or participating in sports, from the professional athlete to the weekend warrior, from the soccer mom to the diehard sports fan, from the marathon runner to the neighborhood jogger. The main point of the book is that sports can bring out the best in the human spirit. There is an intensity inherent in sports that amplifies our emotions and our connection with the moment and even ourselves.
Chicken soup for the sports fans soul is a great book. I belive that anyone would like this book not only sports fans. Everyone would be able to relate to some if not most of the stories. I like the 'magic bat' and 'the winner'. Every single author in this book brings a new emotion or felling to the book. I love how the book is brought togeather sperating each kind of story into its own chapter or section. I love the family time. I also I really enjoyed reading the qoutes and the comics. Most of the comics where really funny and intresting. Every single story cought my attion in some new and intersting way. I loved reading about others exspriances with profession athlets and other athlets, childern or some wrid stories of people who don't know what they are doing.
