Book Reviews

I have a graduate degree in Library Science and I play Ultimate, so I thought I’d bring the two worlds together here on my blog.  So far they seem to be getting along well in the form of Book Reviews.

Each post, under the category of Book Reviews, is broken down into four parts: a Description (annotation), Discussion (its relation/ contribution to disc sports), Critical Review (writing style/ presentation) and Readers Advisory. Throughout each entry, links are provided so you can find the books for purchase and learn some additional information from official websites promoting the book (if they are available).

This page is regularly updated (as I come across published works), so that when you come visit my blog looking for books on Disc Sports, you’ll find all my reviews and upcoming reviews in one place — my own Disc Sports Digital Library. I am building it, so they will come… I hope.

Here is a list of titles on disc sports, coaching and related topics reviewed and to be reviewed sorted by title:
