I love sport. And I love books. And I particularly love books about sport. The best ones are about so much more, of course, and sport is often the best platform for understanding a person, a group, a time or a place.
I’m always looking for recommendations of sports books – particularity any obscure ones I may not have heard of. I’ve read 100’s more before I started the blog, but in time I’d like to re-read any of the good ones.
I don’t claim to be a particularly good writer, and the blog posts are generally positive – mostly because I don’t deliberately seek out books I know I won’t enjoy.
Hopefully as the number of reviews grows, I’ll find more interesting commonalities among sports books to discuss. So far, I’ll lay claim to ‘Howe’s Law’ – a requirement that any book covering English football in the 70’s to 90’s period will invariably mention the late, great, Don Howe – former Arsenal and England coach. The ‘law’ was even quoted in a book about Don Howe.
I try to tweet about sports books in general at @SprtBookReviews and post a copy of each review. Any comments on the site or reviews, find me on twitter or drop me a mail on firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m always looking for new books to review and always happy to hear from publishers / authors looking for an honest review.
