Sean Connolly has written more than 50 books for children and adults. His lifelong fascination with Fenway Park’s Green Monster, coupled with years of trying to master the one-handed backhand and the simple two-putt, have taken him to the border of where sports, science, and wonder meet. An American, he lives in Bath, England. Sean is the author of The Book of Totally Irresponsible ScienceThe Book of Potentially Catastrophic ScienceThe Book of Perfectly Perilous Math, and other books for children. He is the father of three, and loves doing science experiments with his kids.

This book will appeal to kids who love sports, but might need a push toward loving science. Sean’s an experienced and dynamic presenter who finds ways of taking scientific exploration and applying it to familiar and fun scenarios – in this case – sports! This program will appeal to lovers of science, lovers of sports and those who need a little push to loving science! The book received a rave review from the National Science Teachers Association: “This clever and very innovative book is fun to read and would appeal to kids who are interested in sports and science. The author writes in a conversational style between him and the students. His writing is engaging and he uses much appealing humor. A glossary is included at the end. The published edition will have two colors, complete art, and possibly other minor changes. However, I feel this is outstanding and will very likely be exceptional.”
