Book Review: What Were They Thinking?: The Brainless Blunders That Changed Sports History by Kyle Garlett




Book
: What Were They Thinking?: The Brainless Blunders That Changed Sports History by Kyle Garlett

About: Garlett covers dozens of errors, mental mistakes, confused athletes, dense coaches and awkward situations from the history of sport.

Pros: Describes lots of situations from lots of different sports. Sticks up for those who thinks are wrongly vilified like Bill Buckner and Steve Bartman.

Cons: Juvenile humor and writing. Forgettable. On pages 47 and 48 of the hardcover "...with Hayes there was always a 'but'" is used twice. Doesn't cover league foldings like the XFL.

Grade: C-
