Melissa Isaacson’s State: A Team, a Triumph, a Transformation is a compelling first-person account of what it was like to live through both traditional gender discrimination in sports and the joy of the very first days of equality in the 1970s. In You Throw Like a Girl: The Blind Spot of Masculinity, former Syracuse University quarterback and NFL veteran Don McPherson examines how masculinity adversely impacts women and creates many “blind spots” that hinder the healthy development of men. Ryan O’Callaghan, for six seasons a tackle with the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs, writes, in My Life on the Line, about living as a closeted gay man in the hypermacho world of football. In conversation with author, and editor of Akashic Books’ Edge of Sports imprint, Dave Zirin.
