The Rabble Who Dabble In Scrabble
I just finished reading Word Freak: Heartbreak, Triumph, Genius, and Obsession in the World of Competitive Scrabble Players, and I really enjoyed it. Author Stefan Fatsis explores the history of the game, meets the elite players, and becomes an expert player himself after several years of obsessive study. It's a fascinating book for anyone interested in words, language, sports, competition, or people. I recommend it.
