Everyone and Phar Lap is another humorous, insightful and engaging collection of what FitzSimons calls 'sportraits', profiles of our sporting greats. As Australia primed itself for the first Olympic Games of the new millenium, FitzSimons turned his razor-sharp sights on a veritable who's who of sporting heroes from the last 150 years - and others who will seize our hearts and imaginations in the years to come; from Victor Trumper, Sir Donald Bradman, Roy Cazaly, Phar Lap and Mark Edmondson to John Bertrand, Duncan Armstrong, Ian Roberts, Zoe Goss, Shane Warne and Heather Turland."@en ;
