Recently Reviewed

"Sports is a business." Athletes, coaches and various team managements have stressed this phrase time and time again, yet more gullible fans get suckered into thinking that some reality is taken in due to a game's results. Even though it does take talent to pull off an impossible feat, such as a buzzer-beating shot or an interception at 4th & Goal, there's a reason why professional athletes and coaches sound like unemotional robots in pre- and post-game interviews who couldn't care less about their wins and/or losses. That truth has been exposed by Brian Tuohy proving so with this book. And if rigged games by the leagues themselves and the Mafia aren't enough, your favorite superhero athlete may just have had a small run-in with the FBI, is that right, Aaron Hernandez?

Breasts (Front)

You're giggling now but the history of breasts—human breasts—has a lot to say than just being a target of sophomoric jokes and symbols of kinky eroticism. Author Florence Williams dives deep from the development of breasts, its place in society, silly-but-true stories, interviewing experts and why men are also at risk for breast cancer.
