Sports is a singular field, in that if someone has the skills it takes to play the game, at whatever level, it doesn't matter whether they are rich or poor, or what their background or culture is. And of course anyone can come together to enjoy a good game. Despite this inclusivity, the field of sports definitely has its weak points. Readers will gain new perspectives after reading about vital issues including stereotypes in various sports, the pros and cons of segregated versus inclusive sports, and the issues surrounding integrated sports.
