    This Is Your Brain On Sports is like no other sports book you’ve ever read.

    Generally speaking, most sports books are biographies about legends or drawn-out depictions of a specific game, season or event. Brain On Sports is none of those and that’s just one of the things that makes it such a fascinating read.

    Co-written by L. Jon Wertheim and Sam Sommers, This Is Your Brain On Sports is about the psychology of sport, why athletes react in certain ways to certain stimuli and… why fans do as well.

    Umm OK Chumpy but only because I’m a business owner… and I like all forms of cannons… sports books are generally the worst written books possible.

    There are a few that I've come across lately that are worth the read.

    This one is as it gets you thinking about behavior. Like I said, I've already started applying some of the things I've learned to my work and personal life.

    If you're a reader, probably the best sports book I've read in the past few years has been Dylan Dethier's "18 in America."
