What other sporting book will explain the rules of elephant polo; the perils of the Cresta Run; the intricacies of the Palio; the breathtaking antics of Kabaddi; or why surfing is the 'Sport of Kings' (in Hawaii). Which other volume will inform you of the importance of snooker to nuns; the correct temperature of a 'hot bath'; the words of the Haka (and Swing Low Sweet Chariot); the myriad participants of the 'Wacky Races'; or what W. G. Grace considered cheating. Where else will you stumble across famous sleepers; tips for solving cryptic crosswords; pub games and parlour games; or every sporting ailment from joggers' nipple to housemaid's knee.
