Scott Kretchmar, The Pennsylvania State University An easy-to-read analysis of ethics by one of the world's most highly respected sport philosophers. Simon employs a question-and-answer, conversational format, one that is peppered with interesting anecdotes. A must read for anyone interested in sport ethics. An important book that plumbs the depths of complex sport ethics questions and relates answers to everyday concerns about values, justice, and fair play. Simon puts to rest, once and for all, any claims that
sport is a trivial or otherwise uninteresting phenomenon.
