For the record

Allen St. John writes for the Wall Street Journal and also contributes to other big-name national publications. In Made to Be Broken: The 50 Greatest Records and Streaks in Sports, St. John describes, delineates and offers the historical background on sport's most hallowed records, from Hank Aaron's all-time home-run mark to "Pistol Pete" Maravich's college basketball scoring exploits, to Lance Armstrong's cycling feats. Football, tennis, NASCAR, the Olympics, hockey, golf, horse racing, track and field—the major endeavors are all represented, and St. John devotes several pages to each record, offering interesting speculation on how long, and if, it can be expected to withstand the onslaught of athletes yet to come. The photo coverage is excellent, much of it in color, and the book comes with a DVD.
