Soccer, basketball, football, tennis - this book covers them all and more. With photographs and illustrations, Rosen takes readers on an insider's tour of each ball and sport. Find out what Charles Goodyear (the guy who made tires), architect Buckminister Fuller and Adidas all have in common. Or learn that the first golf balls may have been made of rock, Agim Agushi walked over nine miles while heading a soccer ball, and the first baskets used in basketball were peach baskets. For sports fans 8 to 15.
