Abstract:

The sports world is full of epic comebacks, upsets, chokes, and clutch performances. The most memorable buzzer-beating baskets, double-digit comebacks, and unexpected meltdowns are all here alongside vivid photos and lively writing from award-winning sports author Matt Doeden. From racing legend Man o' War's only career loss in 1919 to the 2017 Super Bowl's incredible finish, sports fans will have plenty to digest. Doeden also writes about the science behind clutch performances and asks if some athletes are more clutch than others, or if being clutch is just one of the stories fans tell themselves about their favorite sports. --
