A collaborative effort with nationally-recognized graphic designer Nick Newton, this coffee-table work is an in-depth, colorful examination of sports in America—and the way athletes and fans invest sports with a sense of higher purpose, higher meaning … and superstition. A sweeping, affectionate examination of the hopes and dreams that make sports the tie that binds so many disparate individuals. Praised in several publications around the country, the book is considered one of the final words on the way sports seem to border on a certain religion for so many people. Referenced on ESPN and other national venues.
