When humans first tried to run for fun, or shot an arrow that wasn't aimed at lunch, sport was invented. If you have ever wondered when ball sports were invented, or why the first Olympics didn't have a marathon, or when golf was first played, or what the association is between milking stools and cricket, then this is the book for you. Packed with the extraordinary history behind all the major and many of the minor sports, this is an irreverent look at the great sporting moments of the last 4,000 years.
