Bestselling author Larry Olmsted presents a highly entertaining game changer that uses cutting-edge research to show us why being a sports fan is good for us. Citing fascinating new studies on sports fandom, Olmsted makes the case that the more you identify with a sports team, the better your social, psychological, and physical health is; the more meaningful your relationships are; and the more connected and happier you are. Plus, on a societal level, sports help us heal after tragedies, providing community and hope when we need it most.
