Sports Illustrated Muhammad Ali: The Tribute
by The Editors of Sports Illustrated
"The definitive tribute that celebrates the life and legacy of Muhammad Ali, an American original."
What sets this particular illustrated homage from all the other Ali books is the SI factor. The American sports magazine has chronicled The Greatest's rise to global icon status over the years, so Muhammad Ali: The Tribute definitely does not lack compelling material.

Players: 250 Men, Women & Animals Who Created Modern Sport
by Tim Harris
"This book introduces 250 men, women, and animals, each of whom has transformed at least one major sport. Famous or infamous, remembered or forgotten, god-like or god-awful, the game was never the same after them."
Players traces the history of each game and gives proper credit to its innovators — be it two- or four-legged. Harris, who also wrote Sport: Almost Everything You Ever Wanted to Know, also examines sport as we currently know it and explains the rules that govern them.
