What sport tells us about life

Author(s): Ed Smith


Why will there never be another Bradman? How do you win 33 games in a row? Why did Zidane lose his rag on the world's stage? Foraying into sport's leftfield, this title intends to ask the questions we rarely ask of our teams and players. It answers questions such as when is cheating really cheating? Is the free market good for sport?
