How does Rahul Dravid reflect the values extolled by an ancient Tamil philosopher? What is the warning from the Bhagavad Gita that a goalkeeper in Colombia ignored? How does an Olympic athlete learn to laugh in the face of her most crushing defeat? Why would President Mandela state that it is an honor to meet a tennis player infamously known as the super-brat? These and other stories enthrall the readers, and give a glimpse of how ethics and values dramatically play out in public at the highest level of sports.

With sixteen unforgettable tales, this collection spans the entire world of sports- from cricket pitches to football fields, from hardwood to grass courts, from landing pits to sprinting tracks. Some of these anecdotes are well-known, while others have been buried in the footnotes of sports lore. But, each story serves as a remarkable display of human nature.
