Reviews

Booklist Reviews 2018 September #1

It's no simple thing to explain being clutch. The term itself falls short of fully capturing the intangible quality of the moment—or sequence of moments—that it describes. The best way to explain is to show, which is what author Doeden does in this compendium of sporting highlights. He reviews upsets, comebacks, epic chokes, and memorable last-minute heroics, before examining the science and psychology of being clutch, such as it is. The book is heavily skewed to American sports, with a couple of European mentions. Player profiles and anecdotes that don't quite fall into those categories are listed in side boxes, such as a 1982 college football game that ended with a receiver plowing into the opposing team's band, which had entered the end zone for a premature celebration. There is a nice balance of recent glories and legendary triumphs, so even casual sports fans might be familiar with some of the events mentioned. While there is no consensus on clutch, there is plenty for fans to consider and debate. Grades 5-7. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2019 Spring

Doeden's lively, fast-paced narrative first addresses what clutch means in a sports context. Then he focuses on individual and team sports in which an athlete or team has responded positively or negatively to game-changing challenges, often resulting in surprising, nail-biting finishes. Well-chosen action photos provide young sports enthusiasts with glimpses of clutch players and performances throughout modern history. Reading list, websites. Glos., ind.
