SPORTS PAGE by Stanley Woodward


Email this review


For years sports editor of the N.Y. Herald-Tribune, Woodward was responsible for a page outstanding for its coverage, the light touch, the accuracy. Here he writes of the trials and tribulations of getting out a sports page, of the selection of writers, their training, how they get and write their stories. He includes some of the best pieces of recent years, tells of most of the outstanding sports writers the country over and what makes them tick. Not only good reading for the sports fan, but good vocational material for any young man interested either in the mechanics of a newspaper or in the job of the sports writer.
