Science of Sport: Football : How It Works (Series)


Fascinating book that looks at the science behind the game. What makes the ball 'spin'? How do you get more force behind a kick? Why do you need studs on a boot? A slim, attractively produced book with lots of colour photographs and well laid-out information boxes, it is quite a challenging read but could really help those students - especially boys - who can read but aren't always motivated to do so. There's a useful glossary and suggestions for further reading and information. Other sports covered in this series are: American Football; Baseball; Basketball; Ice Hockey; Skateboarding. Good for cross-curricular work too!
