Publisher Comments:

What makes a curveball curve? What was the longest basketball-winning streak of all time? What is the oldest surviving golf hole in the United States? What Supreme Court justice once won the NFL rushing title? How many horses have won the Triple Crown? Did ancient Chinese shuttlecock kicking lead directly to badminton, or were there other influences? During which World Cup final did Pele lose his shorts? Who are the tallest and smallest players in NBA history? Who had the largest appetite? How big is the Stanley Cup and how much champagne does it hold? More than 1,000 similar questions are answered in The Handy Sports Answer Book, with chapters on football, baseball, hockey, basketball, the Olympics, soccer, golf, auto racing, horse racing, tennis, boxing, extreme sports, and volleyball, plus a token question on judo and two on fencing. It's a sports fan's dream--not a big or important dream, but a dream nonetheless–for an affordable general sports reference covering origins, history, personalities, rules, techniques, records, and great moments of America's favorite sports.
