Description

From the author of the international bestsellers "Schott's Original Miscellany" and "Schott's Food and Drink Miscellany" comes the third and most playful installment in the series: a miscellanist's wisdom from the worlds of sports, games, and idling.
What other sporting book will explain the rules of elephant polo; the perils of the Cresta Run; the link between crosswords and the devil; the story behind the Nike "swoosh"; or why surfing is the "Sport of Kings" (in Hawaii)? Which other volume will list the seven deadly sins of golf; the secrets of Houdini's Code; or the myriad personalities of the Pac-Man ghosts? Where else will you stumble across an account of Evel Kneival's broken bones, a detailing of Mike Tyson's tattoos, the nicknames for classic poker-hands, or every sporting ailment from jogger's nipple to housemaid's knee?
You don't have to be a sports fanatic to enjoy this irresistible volume of factual odds and ends. "Schott's Sporting, Gaming, and Idling Miscellany" scores big with its fascinating hodge-podge of sports- and activity-related trivia.
