"When determining sports GOATs, how do you compare heavy-hitter Hank Aaron to all-star pitcher Randy Johnson? You just can't! This series breaks down the greatest players of all time not just by their sport, but by their positions. Using statistics and logic, each book counts down the top ten best athletes to ever play. Readers may find themselves questioning the rankings―even narrowing down the GOAT based on position is contentious!―but Lowe demonstrates excellent persuasive writing, rationalizing the selections and their placement. For instance, number two pitcher Walter Johnson may have more wins than number one pitcher Greg Maddux, but with his four Cy Young and 18 Golden Glove awards, it's hard to argue against Maddux as the true pitching GOAT. Each book ends by inviting readers to research and then create their own top ten list. There's much to explore in this engaging series. VERDICT A first purchase."―School Library Journal
