Synopsis

The Science Behind Football, Volleyball, Cycling and Other Popular Sports by Stephanie Watson

Behind every Summer Olympic scoring football kick, tennis-ball bounce and hard-hitting volleyball serve, science is at work. The type of kick used on a football affects its path. An equestrian leans forward during a jump to help the horse balance. Cyclists wear tight clothing to reduce drag. Find out how science is involved in several popular Summer Olympic events and how athletes take science into account in their quest for the gold medal.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
