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. From Upset's 1919 victory over Man o' War in the Sanford Stakes to 2011, when rookie Trevor Bayne won the Daytona 500, The Biggest Upsets takes readers through 13 great upsets in the realms of college, professional, and Olympic sports. 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"
