Whichever sport you follow, it is only through books about the games, the players, the events and the participants that you will gain a real insight into the motivating factors behind people with unimaginable (and sometimes inexplicable) talent. Fixtures and results bombard you from every conceivable media channel – TV, radio, the internet, mobile phones. But the real insights into the characters of the people, and the inside stories of the dressing rooms - from the muddy fields of winter to the steely mechanics and oily rags in the pit-lane - only really come from reading about them in books (sometimes long after the event is over or the personality has died).
With free Opening Extracts of all our Featured Books, Lovereading will allow you a sneak preview into this behind-the-scenes world. Did this player really not get picked on tour because the others couldn’t abide his wife? Was he really a cheat? Can she really be that self-possessed? Or is self-obsession what you need to succeed in this harsh, competitive world? How far do these people go to succeed? Would you go that far yourself? Here is a selection of books that will help you find out.
