This is the stupidest book i have EVER read in my whole life.

I actually got bored while sports was in my mind. I might have liked the book only if i just learn one thing. ...more

I thought the book was great because there was a lot of information in the text. I liked that it had a ton of text because it gives you more information than just looking at pictures. I thought the pictures were great because they made you feel like you were on the sidelines and they were very detailed.
