Straddling humour, trivia and sport, 'Notorious' brings together for the first time one hundred of the most potty sportsmen in history. From boxing to cycling, soccer to baseball, and most sports in between, here are the hard-men and the criminals, the psychos and the loonies, that make up the sporting madness hall of shame. / An entertaining and eclectic potpourri of all the wild and wacky characters that make sport so appealing to the masses. / Its humour will attract a broad range of readers, including those with only a passing interest in sport. / An ideal Christmas stocking-filler for the sports-obsessed family member. / Trivia/humour books like Schott's specialised miscellany have proved hugely successful. / Competition: Motty's National Obsession (Sanctuary) Big Book of Sports Insults (Cassell)
