it was amazing
Read in December, 2007

While not perfect (a friend recently pointed out how little attention he pays to women's sports--though I was introduced to Zirin by his analysis of the Kobe Bryant rape case), I like Zirin's way of looking at sports in their social context. I think his economic analyses are the sharpest, but I'm glad he also brings in issues of race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, and sexuality.
