"This is a winner" - by Amazon Customer
There's a lot of data in sport - even in a single match I suppose - and I would guess that most of it is dull. This book finds numbers that cut through everyday stats and makes stories, or arguments, out of them. The result is fascinating, and it's presented graphically so it's fun and easy to digest. I kept not quite managing to put it down and ended up going to bed about three hours later than I meant to.

"Overall an interesting and quite useful book. In the 80's/90/s I had a book ..." - by Tony
I had hoped that it would include The laws of these sports. They included some but certainly not all. Overall an interesting and quite useful book . In the 80's/90/s I had a book called "The rules of the Game". This had the complete(as far as I know ) rules/laws. The publicity for The Sports Book suggested that it would do that too. I think there is a gap in the market for just such a book.

"A great gift for all sports fans" - by D. Dempster
I recieved this book as a gift, and this book really makes an impression with its unique astroturf covering. Contained within are explanations of around 200 different sports, giving basic information on the main rules and tactics, perfect for armchair fans of sport to be able to understand what you're watching on the TV a bit better. As a keen sports fan, I am familiar with the majority of the wide range of sports in this book, and so I would have welcomed the inclusion of maybe some more obscure and lesser-known sports to expand my horizons a bit; perhaps the authors can find enough for a second volume.

"It’s a brilliant read about family" - by Andrew Mears
This is so much more than the memoir of a professional sportsman. It’s a brilliant read about family, sport, business, overcoming adversity and the overall rollercoaster of life in general. Genuinely thought provoking and personally took a lot from it. A must read.

"Great value of the 21st Sports century" - by vladrakola
I have recently bought this book and i find it very useful and valuable. As i bought it for photography purposes, in order to understand the rules of the certain sports games, which i am going to photograph, this really is a magic wand. One can get familiar with almost all sports "games", that exist on our planet. Some will surprise you, as you might not even have a knowledge of such sports events existence.
The only improvement, that could be made, would be adding real photos from the events.

"Captivating read" - by Kindle Customer
It's been a while since I've read a book from cover to cover in such a short space of time, this is a fascinating book full of wonderful stories that are both heartening and moving. I love the style of flitting between narratives, it gives a real cliff-hanger feel to each anecdote. Beautifully and intelligently written, as this expect from a Guardian journalist. Highly recommended for genuine football lovers.

"Socially as well as sportingly insightful" - by Paul Laxton
A top, top book, not just for its clear insights into the game but also for the window it opens on northern working class life for the baby boomer generation as they grew up. No self respecting home sports library would be complete without it.
