Review: This is Your Brain on Sports (2016)

By L. Jon Wertheim and Sam Sommers

The Buffalo News published my updated review of this book. You can find it by clicking here.

Since I read the book, it went through a little rewriting about a section on following losing teams. The catch was that it was about the New York Mets, who became winners last season.

Otherwise, though, this is still a sharp look at a variety of subjects in the world, from psychology to human behavior. Just don't be intimidated by that statement, because the authors take you through all sorts of situations - starting with why people fight to get a free, flimsy t-shirt shot out of an air cannon at games.

Four stars
