So many of the narratives in sports are fundamentally visual—stories told by plays, opportunities missed and seized—that the art of writing a compelling book about a sport is easy to take for granted.

If you find yourself in wonder every year at the year-old on your television set performing feats of mental and physical wonder, then this is a must-read.
