This book covers the best of the best, although there is lots of room to argue about venues and teams. Notre Dame and Pittsburg are here, ice hockey, rugby, golf (a couple of times) and everybody's favorite, Elephant Polo.

Notre Dame and Pittsburg are here, ice hockey, rugby, golf (a couple of times) and everybody's favorite, Elephant Polo. East Coast, West Coast and all around the world, almost every sport you can imagine is here, each with at least one full color photo. and a nice description of what you are looking at, where it is, and why it is important. Even the world Series of Poker is listed although I wonder about the athleticism of many of the players. And next time you plan to go to Sienna Italy, try to hit the dates in July and August for the horse race. It is only been happening for more than 450 years so its about time you got around to seeing it. My favorite is the Indy 500. I didn't see rodeo listed, yet poker is in here. What were you thinking Misters Fleder and Hoffman? The only present that would top this is a large collection of tickets to the places and events listed.

    First off, I was lucky enough to win this as a Goodreads giveaway. This is a great book for your coffee table. It has cloth boards, an unusual sign of quality for a new book. The pages are thick and glossy, and the pictures are outstanding as you would expect from a book with Sports Illustrated pedigree. The two gentlemen who put it together both have had some ties to SI. The list itself does just what such a book wants to do--- it'll start some discussions. Overall, it's pretty tough to argue a First off, I was lucky enough to win this as a Goodreads giveaway. This is a great book for your coffee table. It has cloth boards, an unusual sign of quality for a new book. The pages are thick and glossy, and the pictures are outstanding as you would expect from a book with Sports Illustrated pedigree. The two gentlemen who put it together both have had some ties to SI. The list itself does just what such a book wants to do--- it'll start some discussions. Overall, it's pretty tough to argue against the choices, in my opinion. The table of contents is nifty in that it's a checklist with boxes for you to check off as you achieve them. The descriptions are well written, and state the writers' compelling reasons for including the venue or event on the list. You'll enjoy it as a sports fan. If you're not all that into sports, you can still admire the photography and much of the history behind many of the venues and events.

    I really like this book. It's from Sports Illustrated authors so you know it will feature American sports, and yet there's a lot more here. Who knew the world of sports was so varied? You'll learn sports you've never even dreamed could be, like competitive skycraper footraces. Get this book! I really like this book.

    3/5: A fun collection of events that I will have to book into my schedule before my time runs out. Glad I have hit a few of them already including Milwaukee Brewer’s tailgating!
