Sterling ISBN 978-1-4027-5641-2 $9.95 (4) 4-6 This oversize book features large posterlike photos (many close-up and actual size), multiple foldout pages, and accessible text, all of which will leave NASCAR fans breathless. The race car's structure and functions as well as the sport of racing, including drivers and terminology, are adequately explained (though the lack of a glossary and resources limits the book's usefulness). Sports fans will appreciate the range of topics discussed in the series, from basketball to snowboarding, auto racing and professional wrestling. The text recounts Lopez's record-breaking wins, pivotal role in promoting women's golf, and enduring popularity among fans, providing ample material for report writers. The text follows Louis from his birth into poverty in 1914, his successes in boxing circles, his heavyweight world championship bouts, and finally his acceptance by both blacks and whites as an American sports hero.
