"The issues discussed from Babe Ruth’s Home Run Secrets, to why swimming trunks don’t cut it anymore, or why a seemingly straight kick curves drastically just before its target—in other words, how to bend it like Beckham—plus so much more." Figure out the chemistry, biology, and physics at work behind all of your favorite players and sports.
the science behind sports. Great for any sports or science lover.
