Guys Read: The Sports Pages

Volume 3 of the GUYS READ LIBRARY OF GREAT READING

Jon Scieszka

From the Introduction, by Jon Scieszka:

"My son, Jake, an amazing athlete and long-suffering receiver of lame sports books, once wisely explained to me that just because a guy likes to play sports doesn't mean he likes to read about them.

That is so true.

But there is something about a good sports story that is exactly like a good game. The good game and the good story both reveal character and truths bigger than the game or the story.

And like any good sport, a good sports story depends on teamwork. It needs a writer willing to give his or her best, and a reader willing to do the same.

Take a look at any of the stories in this collection. There is everything from football to friendship to baseball to fighting, and a lot more in between.

This bunch of writers brought their best.

Now show us what you've got."
