The 64 Best Sports Books of All Time. According to Men's Journal

Recommended Posts

I haven't, but I do have the ESPN book to read at some point.

I have a small mountain of sports books to either read or listen to.  I'm surprised some that I have read were not on that list.

Yeah, It included a lot more fiction that I would have expected. I have a decent stack piling up as well but Im working through that Performance Cortex book and some of that kinda goes over my head and I have to reread it so its taking me longer to get through.

I am finishing up a book on the 19th century West.  

I think I'll go with one of the newer Baseball data books:

Alright, I finished up the western and went to the only downloaded Sports audiobook (out walking - getting in tailgating shape now) I had - American Pharoah: The Untold Story.

I think the only reason I had this was because Amazon made it available as part of a promotion.  Not a horse guy or a gambler, but I'm 4 chapters in and learning a lot about horse sex.  Yeah....

But it is interesting so far....I thought I might not be able to get through it, but I still listening...so far so good.

I'm gonna add the Astro book to my amazon list.

The American Pharoah book looks interesting, Im not really into horse racing either but I do get incredibly interested in the triple crown, I always pull heavily for the one to be achieved. Might put that on there too.

Finished American Pharoah, the audiobook, this morning.

I did learn a lot about horses and am now interested in more races outside those in the Triple Crown, but know more about the Triple Crown than ever.  I never really knew the order or the challenge/hardship on the horses.  Didn't know Baffert was a native Arizonan either.  

Recommend?  Not so much.  It was interesting but not the book/audiobook that I think I'll want to experience again.  Insightful, but not in my wheel house.

Right now, I'm moving back to non-sports with a book about Harry S Truman.  After that, I think it will be "Ahead of the Curve".

I'm out of sports books in my library, but will be purchasing the one mentioned, by Brian Kenny, soon.
