What other people are saying:
“Wonderful and informative read! This book is a terrific source of anecdotes from sporting history…the one-legged man who won Olympic gold, how Mohammed introduced the famous Bedouin bloodline to horse breeding, which ancient Olympic superstar was eaten by wolves? Who was the most notorious cheat in the world of Roman chariot racing? What’s the worst ever round of golf in a professional tournament? Who is regarded as the first billionaire in modern sport?.”
“My 10 year old Grandson was fascinated and continues to find something of interest whenever he picks it up. Unfortunately he doesn’t have room to have it on the wall but that isn’t a problem“
