Every generation, it seems, must be apprised of the feats of sportsmen in the past. This anthology of sports-related events and undertakings offers a primer on some of the more remarkable winning streaks and personal bests of the last century, from Wilt Chamberlin's 100-point game to Roger Bannister's four-minute mile. Each accomplishment rates a single spread, with a large photo and a brief essay describing the heroic act. Certain sports fans may quibble about which greatest feats were left out-or which mistakenly included-but that is to miss the point. This is a volume for neophytes, not self-styled experts, and the information offered is a foundation to build on, a core curriculum of conventional manly stats and facts to swap on playgrounds and in barrooms for years to come-and an object lesson in rooting for the winner.
