"A visual reference to the mathematics of sports." Any definition of sport begins with the term "physical." Motion, power, energy and momentum are the driving forces of physics, and numbers govern all sports. People and objects move in lines and curves, geometry determines progress, times are recorded, points counted, scores calculated. Without understanding numbers, it is impossible to understand sport. Athletes should be interested in the mathematics of sport for the simple reason that it can help them win. For fans, it brings greater enjoyment from their favorite sport. "All the Right Angles" is a fun, fascinating and highly visual book that explains the mathematical and scientific principles in sports.
