Putting the physics in physical sports, this highly visual book shows why top competitors have a natural gift for math. In fact, numbers—whether measuring the trajectory of a golf ball, the gear ratios of a Formula 1 race car, the co-efficient of friction between a surfer's foot and the board, the stats of a ballplayer's performance, or the odds of breaking a winning streak—are at the heart of sports and their metrics. Science writer Joel Levy presents these numbers in brilliant infographics, covering 89 topics in two-page and four-page layouts, from the ideal ice temperature for hockey to the geometry of a billiard ball shot.
