EVERYTHING YOU KNOW IS PONG
Everything You Know Is Pong ($) is a brilliantly designed and beautifully illustrated tribute to the game of ping pong. The most popular sport in the world is also just about the least appreciated, and here we have tales of the table from such icons as Will Shortz. Nick Horby, Davy Rothbart, Jonathan Safran Foer and Harold Evans. Every sport going claims that it is the world’s game but none can come close to the global status enjoyed by the ubiquitous and modest game of ping pong. Quite why this fast paced phenomena has never reached the upper echelons of sporting history, and made superstars of its plays, is still a mystery, one this book seeks to solve.
