Sport revolves around two things: narrative and numbers. You need the narrative, otherwise why would anyone care about sport? Rivalries, emotions, and sporting legends all require it. But sport also needs numbers. Without them, we have no idea who has won. We need numbers to tell which team is top of the table, or who is the world champion.

Sports Geek is a visual and numerical tour through sporting debates and ideas. Teams in all sports use data to create extraordinary analysis of how their players perform, to assess tactics and to get an edge over arch rivals; but fans are rarely presented with challenging and informative data that would help them to further understand sport.

You'll never see sport the same way again.

Review:

'Perfect toilet book' --Chris Evans BBC Radio 2

'Good fun' --Hawksbee and Jacobs talkSPORT

Amy Lawrence and photographer Stuart MacFarlane chart the consistency and integrity (and fruitlessness, some would argue) Arsene Wenger has brought to the Gunners under his watch
Irish Independent

Few know the Gunners quite like Lawrence
FourFourTwo

For an alternative explanation of the special appeal of sport try Sports Geek by Rob Minto which in words, statistics and pictures explains what it is about sport that will provoke endless arguments in the coming year --Philosophy Football

Book Description:

A stunning visual and numerical tour through sporting debates and ideas.
