5.0 out of 5 stars A very interersting read, 6 Dec. 2005
This review is from: How to Take a Penalty: The hidden mathematics of sport (Hardcover)
With a subtitle 'the hidden mathematics of sport' I thought this might be dry, but in fact I read it in one sitting. I'm not particularly a mathematician, but the maths in here is accessible, and the harder stuff is stuck away in the appendix. Lots of sports included, though the most commonly referred to are football, cricket, tennis, rugby and athletics. Great chapter on darts. A very interesting read.

This is an excellent dissection of a number of sports, in terms of mathematics and probability. Highly recommended.
