Great textbook for college.!  April 4, 2011

I bought this textbook for college as part of the Health and Exercise Science department requirement. At the time I thought the price was a little steep but when you look at the information in the textbook you realize that it is "one of those textbooks you will use forever". I have the 8th edition so I do not know what has been updated but I do see that it was first published in 1951. It covers 26 sports/activities. It is worth the investment, especially when you need to know the exact dimensions of a tennis court.
