How to Take a Penalty by Rob Eastaway

Book Description

'An interesting read for even the most maths-phobic' - 'The Good Book Guide' on Rob Eastaway's best-selling "What Is a Googly?" Why might it help a penalty taker to look at a clock before he kicks the ball? Does winning the toss actually matter? And why should some people consider playing darts blindfold? "How to Take a Penalty" takes a novel and intriguing look at sport, by exploring the mathematics behind the action. Discover, for instance, the surprising links between boxing and figure skating and between American football and cricket, the unusual location of England's earliest 'football' (in a parish church), the 26.5-degree 'trick' snooker shot, the pros and cons of being a consistent golfer, and the formula for winning a game of tennis. Whatever your sporting interests or ability, you will find plenty to absorb you in this insightful and fun book - and maybe you will improve your own chances of success!
