Nearly 200 million Americans consider themselves sports fans, yet very little attention has been paid to what that does to us.
The new book Fans, by New York Times Bestselling author and award-winning journalist Larry Olmsted, takes a deep and fun dive into the world of sports fans to learn how being a fan impacts us, both individually and collectively as a nation. 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.
Larry Olmsted is an award-winning journalist who has been a visiting professor at Dartmouth College, where he taught nonfiction writing. He is the author of the New York Times bestseller Real Food / Fake Food and Getting into Guinness, a history of the Guinness Book of World Records, a book for which he broke three world records himself while researching.
