Sumo free pdf "Sumo" is a fresh and funny introduction to the fascinating world of sumo, Japan's national sport. Author David Benjamin peels away the veneer of sumo as a cultural treasure and reveals it as an action-packed sport populated by superb athletes who employ numerous strategies and techniques to overcome their gargantuan opponents. "Sumo" provides an engaging, witty, behind-the-scenes look at sumo today. This volume is an updated and thoroughly revised version of Benjamin's popular "The Joy of Sumo", which was called the most entertaining and irreverent guide to sumo by James Fallows in "The Atlantic". Benjamin's enthusiasm and insight into the sport remain unmatched, and his frequently humorous descriptions of the personalities and pageantry of the sport will have you laughing out loud.
