Overview

The greatest, the worst, the biggest, the strangest, the funniest, the most impressive moments, feats, milestones, teams, and players in every sport-from baseball to horse-racing-fill the pages of this fresh, irreverant, and browsable reference.

This entertaining and exhaustive book features hundreds of fascinating lists, anecdotes, history, and lore from baseball, football, and hockey to tennis, golf, and even the Olympics. With wit and an unparalleled knowledge of sports, Andrew Postman and Larry Stone dredge up every interesting tidbit imaginable about the players, the teams-even the mascots-of all of the major sports and the minor ones, too. Some might call this "trivia," others would term it "light reference"-but whatever you call it, it is the most browsable, quotable, and indispensable volume ever to light up the eyes of the true sports fan. Highlights of the hundreds of lists include: 25 CLASSIEST SPORTS MOMENTS, 19 DRAMATIC TURNAROUNDS AND COMEBACKS, 18 MOST MEMORABLE TRADES, 25 MOST EXCITING ATHLETES, 10 MOST MOVING MOMENTS, 8 GREAT CINDERELLA STORIES and so many more. It's pure fun-and just what sports fans crave.
