The ultimate gift for any sports lover, or the difficult male relative you never know what to buy for Christmas!; As with the other books in the Ultimate series, the Ultimate Book of Sports takes a somewhat lowbrow subject and elevates it through package, design, and tone to an attractive and elegant product with tons of interesting content that looks great on the bookshelf or the coffee table.; Previous Ultimate titles have a strong sales track record.
Scott McNeely is the author of Ultimate Book of Card Games, Ultimate Book of Jokes and many other titles. He as written for numerous magazines, website and travel guide books.
"Everyone has an ESPN junkie on his or her shopping list, right? And there's a good chance that those statistic-obsessed, secondhand athletes think they know everything about every kind of physical competition. To which we say, give them Scott McNeely's pocket-sized but immensely detailed Ultimate Book of Sports and watch their egos crumble at the weight of unknown trivia. Unless, of course, your sporty brother's man-cave is already covered with posters of as many Mongolian wrestlers and jousters as NBA stars and Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders." --Complex.com
