The Greatest Moments in Sports Len Berman . Sourcebooks/Jabberwocky , $16.99 (144p) ISBN 978-1-4022-2099-9

Veteran sportscaster Berman offers his selections for the most groundbreaking moments in sports, with color photographs and stats throughout. The broad grouping kicks off with Michael Phelps's swimming victory at the 2008 Beijing Olympics; other highlights include Hank Aaron beating Babe Ruth's home run record, Billie Jean King's match against the boastful Bobby Riggs (“it may not have been the greatest of sports moments... but it was certainly one of the most memorable”), and the U.S. Women's World Cup Soccer win in 1999. It's an eclectic roundup that's likely to have readers mulling their own personal favorites. An audio CD featuring broadcasts of 10 featured moments is included. Ages 7–up. (Nov.)
