"There are books about sport that say something about philosophy, and there are books about philosophy that say something about sport, but one or the other usually gets slighted. Gibson has something important to say about both. That is rare." - Michael A. Oliker, Midwest Philosophy of Education Society "Gibson addresses serious issues that are of concern to both those who study sport and those who experience it. One does not have to look far to see some of the problems in sport that deal with values: cheating, steroids, scholastic eligibility, showmanship, strikes, etc. With these problems in mind, the book is timely and insightful. I recommend it highly." - Steven G. Estes, California State University at Fullerton
