Former professional sports journalist Sol Neelman is surely one of the most unusual sports photographers in America: he has a passion for offbeat sports people play in their spare time. His first book, Weird Sports (Kehrer Verlag, 2011), which sparked a worldwide media sensation, is now joined by this sequel, which brings us more whacky ideas and astounding photos to marvel at as people pursue sports such as Chuckwagon Racing, Lingerie Basketball, Bike Tossing, Frog Jumping, Color Running, Live Monster Wrestling, Forklift Bowling, Water Balloon Fighting, Cowboy Downhill, Barstool Ski Racing, Quidditch, Unicycle Polo, Indoor Skydiving, and much, much more.
