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.
