Chris Evert, Rebecca Lobo, Rick Reilly, Bill Simmons: what is even more remarkable than each's career as an athlete or a sportswriter is the relationship each has with a father or daughter. Following the success of ESPN's Fathers & Sons & Sports, this new anthology chronicles the many facets of raising a daughter--and communicating with a father--through sports. Female participation in organized athletics increases every year, becoming a more important way for fathers and daughters to bond. It's not about being a tomboy anymore: it's about being an athlete, being a competitor, facing challenges, making a father proud, and most important, making him a huge fan of women's sports and the strength of character each one displays.

Publishing behemoth Random House is the largest English language publisher in the world, with books of all kinds including the best in fiction, nonfiction and children’s literature. Random House first made international news by successfully defending in court the U.S. publication of James Joyce's masterpiece, Ulysses, setting a major legal precedent for freedom of speech. Beginning in the 1930s, the company moved into publishing for children, and over the years has become a leader in the field. Random House entered reference publishing in 1947 with the highly successful American College Dictionary, which was followed in 1966 by the equally successful unabridged Random House Dictionary of the English Language. It continues to publish numerous reference works, including the Random House Webster's College Dictionary.
