Summary

"The 100 Greatest Jews in Sports ranks the greatest Jewish athletes in all major sports from the past eleven decades using a limited scope and quantitative criteria. Each decade has showcased a different Jewish athlete, from boxing's Abe Attell to baseball's Sandy Koufax to golf's Amy Alcott to football's Sid Luckman. Profiled sports include baseball, basketball, hockey, tennis, golf, auto racing, boxing, soccer, football, and swimming.". "This book provides a proportional representation of the most important individual accomplishments in sports. Silverman identifies the most common categories of statistics in which the highest paid athletes in all sports have excelled, and he assigns numeric values to reflect the performance categories. By applying these numbers to the records of selected athletes, each is comparatively ranked.". "Filled with historic photographs of athletes and interspersed with interesting tidbits of their personal lives and careers, The 100 Greatest Jews in Sports is certain to be of interest for casual readers and sports enthusiasts alike."--BOOK JACKET.
