Sports GOATs: The Greatest of All Time – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

Browsers will flock to this fast-paced, exciting series. The 20 best athletes for each sport are lauded in snappy bios that break down their phenomenal careers. GOATs of Football includes offensive and defensive players, like quarterback Peyton Manning and defensive end Reggie White. GOATs of Baseball regales readers with the stories of heavy hitters like Willie Mays and Mike Trout, but most notably includes Josh Gibson, a Negro Leagues player who would have been one of the greatest MLB players of all time if he had been allowed in the league. Of course, no hockey list would be complete without Wayne Gretzky, no soccer list can exist without the likes of Pelé and Marta, and tennis lists need Venus and Serena Williams. Readers will be happy to see recent Olympians get shout outs and to learn more about Jim Thorpe and his revoked medals. VERDICT Recommended for general purchase.
