Abstract:

"The language of the official sports rule books is, by definition, not easy to read. Here, however, it's all made simple - and entertaining." "Every important rule of the most commonly played sports and games is explained in simple terms and further clarified by diagrams and color photographs. Many of the photographs show star players in action - so you can learn their skills, and see some of their mistakes, as well." "All the key points governing equipment, the players, the playing surface, how to start, how to score, and how to win are highlighted under clear headings." "In addition, for each sport or game there is an explanation of the rules, point by point, provided as backup."--Jacket.
