This reference work contains 265 anecdotes relating to all major sports played in Australia. It offers a kaleidoscopic history of Australian sport, capturing its essential humour, poignancy and heroism. While many anecdotes celebrate sport, others record its less positive aspects: drug-taking, debilitating injury, notorious failure and crass officialdom. It also features entries on all the legendary characters of Australian sport.
