4.0 étoiles sur 5 Sports Illustrated At Its Best...Mostly 27 juin 2013
Par Andy in Washington - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
If you like the "soft" sports stories in Sports Illustrated, you will like this book. If you don't like them, you will hate this book. It is really that simple. The book is a collection of stories from SI, pretty evenly scattered through the decades from the 50's to the present.

=== The Good Stuff ===

* There is a nice variety of stories, and some from just about every sport. Many famous athletes are profiled, including Johnny Unitas, Andre Agassi, Larry Bird- and some not so famous ones as well such as the Negro League's Josh Gibson and several Kenyan distance runners.

* Most of the stories are poignant and capture the raw emotions of people involved. As a rough characterization, many of the stories tend toward the sadder side of things, and more towards the "people" than the "hard sports" reporting. There are, of course, exceptions.

* A couple of the stories are just, in my opinion, knock-it-out-of-the-park Pulitzer Prize caliber. They are first rate narratives, and are among some of the best prose ever written in any genre.

=== The Not-So-Good Stuff ===

* The title of the magazine is Sports Illustrated, but this collection, at least on the Kindle, has no graphics or photography.

* It has taken me more years than I care to admit to in order to learn that you don't have to read every story in an anthology. There are some sports that do not interest me. Some of the writer's styles, especially the older stories, are just not what I like to read, and a few of the tales just drag on far too long. So I just skip them, and it makes the book a much more enjoyable experience. I would estimate I probably skipped over about 5% of the total.

* I would change the organization of the book. Near the end is the story of Jill Costello, a crew coxswain from Berkeley. This is just one of the saddest and most emotionally draining stories I have ever read. The problem-there were a couple stories after that, all of which seemed anticlimactic. This should have been the end of the book.
=== Summary ===

I enjoyed the book. It took a while to read- it is a bit on the lengthy side. Most of the stories were excellent, although I skipped a few that just did not appeal to me. I'd recommend it to serious sports fans who are interested in the athletes, but most statistics junkies would probably be happier skipping it. Many of the stories would even appeal to more general interest readers, serving as short biographies or human interest stories.
