5.0 out of 5 stars Great, fun read for all!, 5 Jun 2011
This review is from: The Secret History of Balls: The Stories Behind the Things We Love to Catch, Whack, Throw, Kick, Bounce and Bat (Paperback)
For anyone who has seen Josh on our televisions over the last few years talking/commentating about pretty much any American sport you can think of (and doing it well), you will know how he has a knack for putting across things in an interesting and engaging manner.

I first heard about the book on twitter and decided to check out what the story was behind it. Josh wrote a book for not just sports fans, but one that would appeal to everyone. The book goes through the history and origins of balls in sports, from basketballs to baseballs to soccer balls.......in total covering 60 in this book alone!

You probably do not know a lot about the history of balls in sport, but you will learn a LOT by reading the book. It isn't just your typical boring history book either, it is actually quite funny and easy to read.

All this put together makes for a top read and at this price, how can you justify NOT making the purchase?!? I promise, you will be glad you have read this book by the time you put it down at the finish.

This is an excellent & well written book. Its format means you can dip in and out of it or read from start to finish.

Full of interesting facts & trivia this is a recommended read for those who want to know more about the history of the balls used in a variety of sports.
