Encyclopedia of Sports Science by An encyclopedia which threatens to make sports interesting to even the staunchest anti-fan, and science interesting to devoted math-phobes. The first volume contains sections on particular sports, with historical information, basic science concepts, and stories from the annals of sports. Volume two deals with the physiology of sport. Here entries such as heart and circulatory system, knee, and respiration provide information about how the body works under stress, what type of damage or trauma might be incurred in certain sports, and how injuries can be prevented.
