?The spirit of Walt Whitman, cheered on by the ghost of A. J. Liebling, moves Matt Hern's pen in this street-tough but joyful celebration of bodies electric and hopes defiant. The bottom line? Be kind, be tough." ?Mike Davis, author of In Praise of Barbarians

Sports are serious stuff. Football, basketball, tennis, mixed martial arts, and beyond: these are arenas of immense power, with mass appeal, yet far too many of us have abandoned the sporting world as a legitimate site of contestation and innovation. Why? What do we gain by handing over the power of sports to the world of hyper-consumption, militarism, violence, sexism, and homophobia?the worst elements of our culture? As Matt Hern suggests, not a whole lot.

On the basis of his forty-plus years of sports fanaticism, Hern makes an impassioned and entertaining plea for a more active engagement with sports, both physically and intellectually. His eye is critical, and his analysis is sharp, but this book is more than a critique?it's a celebration of what sports have taught us, and a map of how much more we still have to learn. Matt Hern is a former sportswriter and a radical urbanist whose writing has been published on six continents.

Fun, engaging, and fast-paced, One Game at a Time is for anyone willing to get their head into the game.

Matt Hern lives and works in east Vancouver, where he founded the Purple Thistle Center and Car-Free Vancouver Day. A former sportswriter and a radical urbanist whose writing has been published on six continents and in ten languages, he is the author of Common Ground in a Liquid City (AK Press, 2010), which was shortlisted for the Vancouver Book Award.
