This book is great for people who are learning a new sport. I wanted to know how to play cricket and the rules of the game and this booked helped me out.

Until I found this, I never knew I wanted to own a book covered in astroturf. It turns out I did.

Also, it's a great reference. It's packed with information on a huge variety of sports, both mainstream and obscure, many of which I didn't even know existed.

And again: astroturf cover.
