The Middle School Rules Of Brian Urlacher
Told by Sean Jensen
Linebacker's wonder years retold for a YA crowd. Quick read with lots of anecdotes but little attempt to draw life lessons.
The Magnificent Masters
It's 1975 in Augusta, with Jack Nicklaus, Johnny Miller and Tom Weiskopf trading blows over the back nine on Sunday. Tense, detailed, fun.
The Secret Game
Fascinating, well-researched account of a hush-hush 1943 hoops showdown between an all-black college and white all-stars.
History of the pitch dips into all the characters and kookiness but can leave a yearning for a deeper, wonkier dive.
