School Library Journal, Series Made Simple - Abby Bussen, Muskego Public Library, WI

"A refreshing fusion of math and sports. These engaging volumes include lots of references to current stars and iconic athletes, blending readable sports writing with...the math behind those statistics viewers see before, during, and after every game—in a way that is exceedingly palatable. . . .All of the books do a fine job showing the equations or at least describing why the statistic is worth knowing. The crowd goes wild—they’re a hit! A top choice for middle grade readers." - School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
