The aim of this book is to challenge the tried and tested writing styles employed by qualitative researchers of sport and physical activity. The author breaks disciplinary boundaries to move the field into new territory by encouraging qualitative researchers to think of themselves as storytellers, not just scientists. He uses traditional and contemporary styles of writing as examples to introduce the idea that storytelling in different genres will contribute to the understanding and acceptance of sport and physical activity.
