Price: $8.01
"The Beautiful Games: Scotland’s Hidden Sports" is an immersion into little-seen worlds. Scotland is obsessed with football. Other sports live in its shadow, misunderstood or unheard of by all but a few, their compelling stories and characters ignored or disparaged. Henry Hepburn’s growing disillusion with his one-sport country has driven him to explore what else is out there. Who are the diehards keeping their sport alive, the star players who fail to make the back pages? How perilous is their sport’s future in Scotland? And, in a country where their efforts go unheralded, why bother at all? "The Beautiful Games" illuminates a sporting nation waiting to be discovered.

    There’s an unhealthy culture in Scottish sport as it’s overly dominated by football, specifically football played by men. This leaves other sports, and all women’s sport, unfairly ignored by the media and starved of funding and talent. This is the basis of the book. Trying to redress the balance a bit, Henry Hepburn gives us in-depth stories from a variety of sports, with the level of detail usually reserved for football. We’re taken from the well-known rugby and cricket through to the obscure roller derby and korfball. The truth comes out, other sports are as good as football, some are even better! Now that the Olympics are over football will no doubt fill the sports pages again, so it’s a good time to read this book. It's just a pity that not many of those one tract mind football followers will. Well done Henry.
