Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Sports have played a strong role in American life. Teams, individuals, and the coaches who led them are featured in the Legendary World of Sports series. Most football fans know Vince Lombardi as the great coach of the Green Bay Packers, while baseball fans can identify Joe Torre as the great manager of the Yankees; however, they may not recognize the other 13 figures in The Greatest Coaches. Short, two- to four-page chapters feature clear text; black-and-white and color photographs; and some factoid inserts. Each volume includes honorable mentions, a glossary, resources, and an index. A series worth the investment.--Petty, J. B. Copyright 2016 Booklist"
