If you want to know how something is done, why not ask an expert? For Real Sports Reporting, journalist Abraham Aamidor recruited top sportswriters and editors from major media outlets, including the Chicago Tribune, Orlando Sentinel, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Denver Post, and Indianapolis Star, to write about their experiences and lessons learned. The result is an engaging, informative, highly personal look at the real-life work of the sports journalist. Chapters devoted to baseball, football, basketball, soccer, golf, and other sports give readers the inside story on what it’s like to cover a beat. Full-text articles provide samples of the contributors’ published work, followed by fresh and candid critiques by the authors themselves. Issue-oriented chapters address topics ranging from covering college, professional, or small-town sports, to ethical dilemmas in reporting, coverage of women’s sports, and racism in sports. With all the immediacy of an informal chat with the country’s leading sportswriters, this book is a valuable guide for beginning journalists and aspiring sports reporters. It provides sports fans in general with a fascinating view behind the headlines.

About the Author:

Abraham Aamidor, a staff writer for The Indianapolis Star, has reported for The Champaign-Urbana News-Gazette and The St. Louis Globe-Democrat. He is author of Real Feature Writing (1999) and Editor of Real Sports Reporting (IUP, 2003). He lives in Carmel, Indiana.

From Booklist:

Anyone interested in sports writing will want to read this book, which packs between its covers a universe of knowledge. Its 22 chapters, each written by a reporter or editor, cover pretty much the entire spectrum of the field. The text is divided into two sections. The first, "Beat Coverage," features articles on writing about various sports: football, hockey, soccer, golf, tennis, baseball; there's even a general article on how to write a sports column (contributed by a sports columnist). Part two, "The Rest of the Story," offers more general advice, with articles on covering high-school and college sports, doing freelance sports writing, and becoming a sports editor. It's a vastly informative book, a real treat for budding journalists and even a few sports fans with an interest in writing. David Pitt
