Reviews

An engaging introduction to the principles of physics using well-chosen examples from the world of sports. For each sport science example, a simple do-it-yourself experiment (demonstration) is outlined which brings the applicable physics theory to life. Young curious readers will enjoy this book. Adults in the NFL head office might benefit from the section on deflated footballs. JOHN URSCHEL, NFL offensive lineman and PhD candidate in mathematics at MIT The chatty tone, clear scientific explanations, and broad range of athletics discussed mean there s something here for just about every kind of sports fan. Publishers Weekly Sports enthusiasts will find it entertaining, and science teachers could use examples to spice up their presentations. Worth the purchase just to learn the most effective angle to skip a stone across a water surface. Kirkus Reviews"
