SPORTS: The American Scene

Email this review


A well selected collection of articles from the pages of Sports Illustrated. Each is a balanced essay and none contains any of those excesses so often found in sports writing such as over-sentimentality, hero worship, image building, second-guessing ad infinitum. The subjects range from boxing to betting and from track to pool. A ready audience among intelligent readers of all ages with a taste for sporting events.
