You name it – from acrobatics to yachting, with stuff like boomerang throwing, gymkhana, jousting, korfball, and wushu in between – if it's a sport, it's in here. Of course, this thoroughly comprehensive and sophisticated reference is far more than a hymn to arcane competitions; the majors – baseball, football, basketball, soccer, tennis, and golf – all receive thoughtful and extensive treatment. Still, it's the breadth of the Encyclopedia of World Sport that turns a fascinating reference for the sports-curious and sports-obsessed into a truly staggering one.
