May I just take a moment to clear up some confusion? This IS a complete download, what you have to do is use your "go to" option on Kindle to get to the start due to the fact that the book starts at what, in the authors opinion, constitutes the No1 moment. This costs a star because, as can be seen here in other reviews, people have not realised this and have deleted the book.
Now to the book itself. There is no doubt that Isaacs is a superb sports writer but he suffers from a very serious malady, that of believing that America constitutes the "world". This arrogance is a severe problem for people in Europe (pop. 852.4 million), people in Africa (pop. 1.0 billion people, as of 2009) and people in Asia (pop. approximately 4 billion people) who, as might surprise Mr Isaacs, have no in depth knowledge of the more "American" sports such as Baseball and American Football. In fact if you look at the figures that I have provided you'll soon calculate that I have referenced more than 90% of the worlds population, the vast majority of which have no real Baseball or American football leagues which would suggest a complete lack of interest, in the main.
A shame it is then that Isaacs has designated 6 chapters involving those very sports as sporting moments that shook the world. I would refute this and challenge readers outside of the US to recall the day in 1951 when the New York Giants played the Brooklyn Dodgers in the National League playoffs as just one such example of his arrogance. This indulgence constitutes 60% of the book.
When he does write about moments in other sports Isaacs is a cracking read. I won't spoil it by revealing the other moments but I'm pleased to reveal that the number one moment was genuinely "world shaking" and is not an American sport.
Unless you are a real aficionado of the sports I've previously mentioned or wish to be schooled in the more historical games involving those sports then this book is not worth the current price tag.
Lists are normally subjective and books like this can often spark healthy debate but neither objectivity nor subjectivity were present upon the compilation of this list and, consequently, the book suffers.
Your mileage may vary here.
