One of the few bookcrossing books I actually picked up instead of left behind, and it's hard to resist a book with a title like this, although the subtitle is annoying: "and other bizarre sports discovered across Asia". Using the word "bizarre" only says something about the author, not about the individuals practicing those sports and "discovered" implies they're hard to find or virtually non-existant. Further, "across Asia" implies a much larger subject matter than the actual area of interest, with brief mentions of central Asia and the Caucasus and with a strong focus on Turkey, Pakistan and India.
Levine, too often, tries to be too funny. Really not necessary with the material she has access to, but it seems that, to a certain extent, this is also used to mask the relative superficiality of her stories, racing from event to event, from country to country.
