    5-0 out of 5 stars SI's still got it
    I have been a subscriber to SI for 18 years (since my junior year in high school). Some may be disappointed with the magazine because it is essentially the BusinessWeek of the sports world. But just as we have CNBC for real-time business info, we have ESPN (or CNNSI) for real-time sports info. That's not what SI is supposed to be - never was. SI fills the role of recapping the major developments in the sports world, while adding a great mix of some feature articles (often athlete profiles or controversial issues), "hit-and-run" facts and figures, as well as the obligatory editorials. When I consider what I look forward to each week, it's actually not the wrap-ups of major sports events or some high profile story. It's the "little things":

    -the provactive close-up pictures at the beginning
    -Letters to the Editor (maybe the only ones I read of any mag)
    -Go figure (intriguing numbers that tell a story)
    -Rick Reilly's last page column (he has a warm, conversational style that's almost mesmerizing)

    Yes, it's true. You'll read more about baseball, football and basketball than you will about swimming, golf, or extreme sports. But accept SI for what it is - a great way to stay current, go deeper than the daily sports page, and be entertained. The price offered here is cheaper than my own subscription - it's also cheaper than a cup of coffee and lasts longer. So if you are even half a sports fan, you should be treating yourself to a weekly SI.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Glory Daze
    When I was growing up, my older brother, used to keep back issues of Sports Illustrated under his bed. Since he and I shared a bedroom, it was very easy for me to take a look at all of those issues he decided to hold on to. I tended to especially enjoy reading the magazine during football season. Ah, the days of Joe Montana, Walter Payton, Jim McMahon, and John Elway, there was nothing like it. I remember being impressed with the vivid on field photography, straigjht talk about the world of sports, and its look at all of the stats with each sport.

    With those memories in mind, after years of buyng it at times on the news stand, I just signed up for a subscription. Over the years SI has constantly set the standard for covering sports on and off any field. With Football season right around the corner, and sports stars always making news, I can't wait to get the first issue. Thankfully, the swimsuit issue follows, soon after the gridiron game ends its season. Recommended

    2-0 out of 5 stars SI going down hill
    Sports Illustrated is starting to go down hill. All they want to cover is the Yankees, Red Sox and Lakers ... There are plenty of other sports stories and plenty of other fans other than Yankee, Red Sox and Laker fans. Even the state-by-state stories have gone downhill as the year has progressed.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The #1 Sports Magazine
    Sports Illustrated remains the best sports magazine on the market today. I have been a subscriber off and on since I was a kid, and have been a current subscriber for three years.

    Sports Illustrated has excellent feature stories and profiles of teams and athletes. They do a superb job of covering the major sporting events and major sports. It also keeps the reader abreast of developments in a large numbers of sports. And it frequently has longer features that focus on everything from sports history, important current sports issues (such as steroid use), and profiles of more obscure sports.

    If you are going to subscribe to a sports magazine, this is the one to go with.

    5-0 out of 5 stars 5 stars from a subsrciber of over 20 years
    Over the many years that I have subscribed to Golf Digest, I've come across extremely useful information from world class teachers and the top players that has improved my game. In addition to appreciating the superb teaching article, I always look forward to the new product editions. Equally informative and entertaining are the various feature article and interviews. Golf Digest is simply the best golf magazine!

    2-0 out of 5 stars All around
    Golf Digest is the quintessential all around golf magazine. They write about lessons, travel, equipment and golf news. They seem to be a little biased recently with the acquisition of many of today's top golf stars, by not writing anything negative about them or their sponsors, i.e. Tiger and Nike. They are usually right on with their reviews of places to play and I enjoy how they pick one location and focus on it. I.e. Cape Cod, the courses that you can play and other activities that are around the vicinity. I wish they would choose some more exotic locales such as South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and South America though.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A no-brainer
    You can't go wrong with Golf Digest. It is the premier monthly golf publication, the only one with regular articles by Tiger Woods, David Leadbetter and a host of other top names in golf. Each month is jammed with content, travel tips, special deals for readers, game improvement articles -- everything for which you buy a golf magazine.

    There are other good magazines out there, but you (or the golfer you're buying it for) certainly should have a subscription to Digest.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Golf Digest
    This magazine is simlpy the best, most authoritative magazine on golf on the planet. Everything you want to know about golf is right here. Head and shoulders above the rest. I reccommend it highly.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wow!
    Wow! When I read this it was cool. I learned new stuff about golf that I didn't know before. My dad is a big golfer so I read one of his magazine's. If you are into golf I suggest you read this. It is great to learn stuff about golf and about golfers. If you don't like golf I suggest you page through one magazine maybe you'll get interested, too! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Teaches Enlightenment In Your Own Beauty
    I've always been a very physically active person.. I like to run and I like to work out.. but fitness magazines for women tend to be one way or the other: "Don't bother with weight loss, find inner peace with Yoga!" or "How Many Pieces of Lettuce You Can Eat A Day To Look Like Janet Jackson." Sure, it's mildly entertaining to look into varieties on either side now and then, but what about those of us who want some recipes, PRACTICAL training tips and quick workout guides?

    Shape magazine stresses the points that I think are most important in a women's fitness magazine. It offers inspiring weightloss stories, quick (and edible) meals, and fun workouts to boost your regular ones along. And while some of the workout tips CAN get repetitive, just remember.. there are only so many different ways to do a sit-up. Readers of any and ALL fitness magazines know that they usually have the same exercise tips to offer over and over.

    Shape encourages and enlightens. It shows a way to incorporate exercise into any lifestyle and gives you the encouragement to continue an exercise regimen-- no matter how sedentary you are.

    2-0 out of 5 stars It's OK.,
    This magazine is all right, but I have a few problems with it. The good thing about this magazine is that it's focused on fitness and health, which makes it my kind of magazine. It's got great success stories, good food to cook, and good rules for nutrition and your health. My biggest problem is that since I don't have a gym membership, I can't do most (if not any) of the moves in Shape Magazine. I'm tired of moves that you have to do at the gym, or equipment that costs over a thousand dollars just to do a little toning. They should at least give 5 moves that I can do without setting a foot inside a gym.

    Another problem is that I don't like that they show 5-foot-11 models, that are perfectly skinny, and with perfect flat abs, when they could show more *average* women, or possibly a little bit curvier. I don't know about you, but I think that you don't have to be skinny to be beautiful. I just wish that they could see that everyone comes in their different packages. I agree with A.T. also-they also need to be more diverse with their women-black people need to be shown a little more as I rarely ever see black women in this magazine. I suggest that if you have a gym membership, then you should buy SHAPE off the magazine stand every blue moon or so when you see a good issue. If you don't have a gym membership, like most of us, then get SELF instead; it also offers great motivation.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good Magazine if you dont let the images get through you!
    Ok I'll be firm! This is a pretty good fitness magazine, but most of the images aren't very supportive for everybody at all. Sure they encourage me to try be fit but yet again I fear that these overly skinny models will make readers become anorexic or something. After all most people in the success stories arent what I'd call thin.. maybe more like fit overly aged individual. One look at this magazine and you'd think "Oh wow, I'm sure this magazine is telling me I can be that thin if I only read the magazine!" ERrrr... That's totally wrong! The most this magazine can do for you is make you fit for your age, not necessarily physically thin. Otherwise If you ignore the images I'd say this is a pretty good magazine. They even give you makeup tips and give good healthy eating habits. Although I have heard that this magazine is not diverse as in most of the models are white... It does kinda make you go..."Ok so only white people are fit?" I too also think it'd be nice if they added a African American model much more or if they added Asian women in it too.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Won't be renewing
    I'm torn between cancelling or waiting until Nov. and not renewing. I've been reading Shape for about 6 months and am disappointed. I agree with all the other folks about the sickly, skinny 20-somethings on the cover and in the pages. How about us 40-something moms? I'm a YMCA member and workout faithfully, but I'm tired of the fluff and junk. I also subscribe to "Muscle and Fitness For Her". MUCH better magazine.

    3-0 out of 5 stars OK but not great
    Although some of the Shape articles are about self-esteem and feeling good about oneself, they have these articles with photos of models who are all extremely thin. I know this is most pleasing to the eye and probably makes the magazine sell, but for some folks, this isn't a great idea. Also, some of the exercise suggestions are very very general, so it's kind of boring sometimes. I have a degree in nutritional sciences, and most of the guidelines are OK, esp when they have registered dietitians on staff. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Monthly Motivation
    Runner's world is a very traditional magazine with geared towards mostly a middle-aged audience. The authors manage to give the same advice every month and make it sound different. That may be one of the things that makes this magazine so motivational. I keep reading about people who have run every day for the last fifty years or who run in 30 below weather, and I wonder what's keeping me off the roads.

    The Rave Run two page spread photographs are lovely. They each show a runner in a really cool environment with a quote. I have some of them hanging on my wall. I get especially motivated by the one of a man running through the woods when the trees are coated with ice and the ground blanketed with snow. It looks so beautiful, who wouldn't want to go out and run. The ask the expert or Q&A section has the most diverse and informative information from month to month mostly because the questions come from readers and the answers come for a variety of experts. The nutrition section isn't particularly useful. The science seems simplified to the point that it isn't exactly true, and the suggested menu for one of the carbohydrate dinners starts out with 1 cup broiled swordfish along with five or six other things; not really practical in my opinion.

    Runner's World has a nice coverage of racing events past (results) and future (racing calendars), and my hometown of Boulder, CO is mentioned somewhere at least once per issue :). Runner's World encourages everyone to be a winner even if he or she doesn't finish first. It is full of tips for beginners just staring to run and more advance information about training for seasoned amateurs. Some of the information is useful and some is not, but there is enough useful information to make reading worthwhile.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Real Motivator and Educator
    I've been reading Runner's World for about three years now. It seems that whenever my motivation hits an all time low another magazine will end up in my mailbox. After reading half of the magazine I am forced to put on my running shoes and hit the streets.

    There are many educational benefits I receive from these magazines. I enjoy their training tips to help me improve my running time. I enjoy their list of races in the back of issue so I can plan what I want to run next in my geographic area.

    Most importantly, I highly appreciate the safety tips that are included. Running can be very hard on your body, as most of my cross country team learned in high school. This should become standard reading for high school students. I wish my coach had gone through an issue every month with us, highlighting how to run safely while diminishing run times.

    If you run, get this magazine. If you don't run but would like to, visit their educational web page to get an idea how to start and then subcribe to the magazine so, like me, you are reminded to get off your duff and hit the streets.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Only one issue's experience
    I bought the issue because I was told there was an article about beginning runners training for their first half marathon. The article was mentioned on the cover. It turned out to be a fluff piece giving reasons why it was better to run a half marathon than a full one for your first long race. I didn't find a lot more depth. Motivational, some general ideas, but I didn't come away with a lot of technical information.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Your Best Friend
    Sometimes you need a friend to help you out the door and to motivate you to start your running program. This magazine did exactly that for me. Along with its thorough web-site, runnersworld.com, I started a running program that took me from running two minutes at a time to running a 5K (3miles) in twenty-two minutes in only fifteen weeks. Unlike many other magazines, this one does not over burden you with excessive advertisements and random space fillers. All articles are helpful and cover a broad spectrum of practical and entertaining subjects. The best magazine I have ever encountered, you won't be able to put it down!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Education, motivation, how to and information
    Doesn't get much better than this. This magazine knows its focus and cuts right to the chase. Nothing extraneous here, solely about running. Great shoe reviews and good how-to especially for beginners. ... Read more

    Like the industry leader in sports television that created it, ESPN the Magazine is big, bold, and brash, using its oversize format to show off striking full-page images and splashy sidebars.It's not all flash, though: the magazine also gets contributions from familiar on-air talent such as Dan Patrick, Chris Berman, Stuart Scott, Peter Gammons, and John Clayton as well as the athletes themselves.The biweekly format doesn't allow for the minutiae that The Sporting News handles, so you'll get broader features--playoff previews, personality profiles, photo spreads--with an emphasis on basketball, football, baseball, hockey, and some extreme sports, though off-season coverage tends to be limited to a page or two.--David Horiuchi ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent but.......
    I am(was) a charter subsciber to ESPN magazine and loved it for the information and terrific BIG photographs. I only recently let my subscription expire because I couldn't keep up and found myself reading only a couple of sections. It is a pretty BIG magazine with lots and lots of sports information.Having much more edge than its competitor, SI, this magazine takes work to get into, especially if you are from the baby boomer generation or older. The layout is ,well , out there, somewhere between hep(I know people don't say that anymore) and outright spacey. The visual layout is herky jerky much like those edgy camera shots that conform to the principle that there are no rules. The layout does take some getting used to but once you've adjusted the articles are pretty good. Another problem I found with the magazine(most news mags) is that reading about last weeks major sports event is a little anti-climatic after a week long media campaign. They do give you a different angle but by this time you may have had enough about last weeks big event. It also takes alot of time to keep up with issues, they just keep coming and there is (too) much to read. Some of the best featurers are Dan Patricks Outtakes which can be hilarious and In the Crosshairs where they breakdown a player and his equipment. If you have the time this is probably the finest muti-sports magazine around, so, throw out your SI subscription and get into all your favorite ESPN talking heads in print form. Besides,they will probably send you one of those ESPN The Magazine logoed sweatshirts or something.

    2-0 out of 5 stars too much depth, not enough breadth
    This isn't so much a sports magazine as it is a lifestyle magazine about players. I've been subscribing since the first issue but am considering cancelling it soon. The problem is the focus of the articles: every issue has 3-5 articles each profiling one player. If you happen to like the player (from famous players like Kobe to esoteric players like Jarome Iginla), then you're set. However, if you don't care for the player's sport (I don't really care for NASCAR), his team, or the player himself, then you're stuck holding a truly worthless magazine. In constrast, at the end of each mag are one-page summaries of each of the major sports and leagues. I turn immediately to the NFL, NHL, and NBA summaries each week. This is what I mean when I say the mag has too much depth and not enough breadth.

    Occasionally, however, the mag has a few truly excellent pieces. A recent article describing the NFL salary cap was invaluable. Draft and season previews are interesting, but you can find better info on the web and on ESPN.com's own site. The giant full-page photos in the mag don't do much for me either, since I'm not a 15-year-old idolising the players. If you're looking for true sports information, get it off the web, not in this rag.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Mostly Frivolous
    I have been a subscriber of ESPN the Magazine for over a year and I'm sorely disappointed in it. Most of the magazine is frivolous short material that provides very little information and it does a relatively poor job of bringing sporting events or athletes to life. I find particularly annoying the numerous pieces that are supposed to be humorous but are instead banal and pointless. I find reading it mostly a waste of time.

    Unfortunately I'm stuck with my subscription for now. I certainly won't be renewing it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Sportscenter in print
    I agree with the reviewer that said ESPN the Magazine is for readers with short attention spans. That doesn't make it a bad magazine; it just means they cater to their target market. The Magazine differentiates itself from SI by looking ahead to upcoming events rather than looking back. For the most part the writing is solid and written in the same offbeat style that has made Sportscenter such a hit. In short, it's not the greatest magazine but it serves as a good compliment to SI.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Great network, but their magazine stinks
    Some interesting articles, and small bursts of that ESPN sass you're used to, but in a chaotic format that is almost unreadable.

    In-depth articles are rare.

    If this mag wasn't so cheap to subscribe to, no one would be reading it. In short, there are better options available. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best of a big field
    I've spent the last couple of months plowing through every golf magazine I could get my hands on, including Golf, Golf Illustrated, Golf Tips, and Stroke Savers to name a few. Golf Magazine, which has been around since 1959 and comes out monthly, is by far the best in terms of quality, content and presentation. While they all feature tips and lessons, Golf's photos are the most helpful to me, for instance showing stance, grip and frame-by-frame swing photos in separate boxes. I also find their paper quality and photos to be better, and their non-instructional articles to be more interesting. Add to that the fact that the magazine is published monthly, rather than a few times a year, and I believe it's the best deal for the money, especially as inexpensive as it is.

    As an added bonus, many resorts and equipment companies offer special deals exclusively to Golf Magazine readers, which you can take advantage of via a special section on those offers each month.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Nice illustrations for lessons
    I really enjoy how they illustrate and break down their lessons into different playing abilities. Even though they break down the lessons into breaking 80, 90, 100, straight hitter looking for power or power hitter looking for accuracy, they are all very helpful. No matter what your playing ability, I think any golfer can take away a little bit of advice from the playing lessons. Unfortunately, Golf Magazine seems to be a little weak on their travel side lately though; not really focusing on that perhaps due to the downturn in travel in recent months. I wish they would focus on that a little more like some other magazines such as T&L golf or The Golfer.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wowwa!
    I think this is a good review. If you are into golf you should deffenitly read this. If you are not so sure if you want to play golf maybe you should read this and get more into this magazine. This is more for teenagers and up I don't think kids would get this very much. My dad went crazy over this magazine and made me read this magazine and it made me get more into golf. I think if you would like to be more into golf and learn more about the players and the sport you should diffently read this. I think this was a great way for you to get more into golf and maybe just maybe you will be a pro someday. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Outside is awesome
    Outside is a great magazine, including beautiful photography, fascinating articles, a good dose of enviro-activism, and heavy on gear reviews. (Purists, take note--this magazine loves outdoor gear.)

    Frequent articles on extreme sports and travel, and occasionally includes stunning articles that no one else will cover (for instance, the article awhile back on the ongoing mountain war between India and Pakistan).

    5-0 out of 5 stars Reading can be an outdoor adventure
    I usually don't subscribe to magazines. Specially in these days, when the Internet can give you a lot of information just searching in Google. However, this magazine is terrific and I will renew my subscription for many years to come.

    It has very entertaining articles for the adventurer. Its scope is really wide (Cycling, Sailing, Mointanieering, Water and Snow skiing, Rock Climbing, Trecking, Off-Road Motorcycles, Surfing, Fitness...) so it is very probable that if you practice an outdoor sport or just like a particular type of adventure, you will get a nice article to read that matches your interest. It is for everybody!.

    One of the things I really enjoy about this magazine, is all the gearing and high tech equipment they show (and I can't buy). They review GPSs, give you tips on the best beach gear, or even compare different types of binoculars. It is great to have some info, what is wrong with technology for the outdoor life?.

    One Suggestion to the editors: More articles oriented to the outdoor adventure of the readers, not just the writer. The majority of the articles, tell you stories about wonderfull trips and journeys from the perspective of the adventurer/author. However, they don't give many guidelines, directions for newbies, or people interested on doing that.

    Outside Magazine's demographic is either for the athlete/mt climber/backpacker beautiful person who has the time and money to pursue full time sports/climbing etc. OR for the wannabe who wants to see what those folks are doing. It is handy if you're looking for a piece of equipment or want to read about an adventure. After reading the articles though if you're the typical camping/outdoor/average type who works 40 hours a week and makes an average amount of money....a great feeling of inadequacy can come over you.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Get out there!
    First hand accounts of real adventures. Climb Everest. Invade Baghdad. Fly over remote regions of Alaska. Hike, paddle, run for your life! This magazine tells you all about what the great outdoors has to offer.

    3-0 out of 5 stars An Outdoor Magazine for the Armchair SUV Set
    There is some very good writing to be found in Outdoor- Randy Wayne White and John Krakauer come immediately to mind. Excellent reading for the armchair traveller. The bulk of the magazine, however, is an extended advertisement for high-tech outdoors gear, punctuated by ads for SUVs the size of earthmoving equipment that every true outdoorsman or woman needs.

    Outdoors is rather like the numerous amateur photography magazines that obsess about equipment and yet have very little to say about the aestheic of art. When I think of my favorite outdoor adventures I don't think about the equipment I used, or the many and wonderful modern conveniences I brought along. Instead I think of just being in a quiet place, away from flashing and beeping electronics that fill my workday. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good, for the price.
    This magazine is pretty good for the price. The issues are big, there are lots of breed, show, and tack articles, along with contests and opportunities to donate to equine funds. There aren't many ads and there are a ton of pictures, and a lot of the articles are fun. However, I wish this weren't bi-monthly, and though the articles are fun they can get really simple and dull after a while for older readers. I'm fourteen, but the other form doesn't work. Back to the point, it is also more aimed to the show and horse-owning set, like the one reviewer pointed out. There isn't much on horse care and safe riding, or any assurance that the best horse isn't always that fluffy blue-ribbon pony. That's why it gets three stars.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Magazine for Rich Eight-Year-Old Pony Owners
    Young Rider is a very easy-to-read magazine aimed for young girls who own ponies. It is assumed that the reader shows and rides often. The magazine does have valuable information, a quiz (usually including mistakes) and an entertaining short story in each issue, not to mention the big, pretty posters which cover the walls in my room. However, the posters are double-sided, and only one is a lovely Mega Poster (the other is your average magazine-sized pullout that tears out of the staples). The annual camp listing is a very valuable feature for those searching for a horsey sleep-away camp. I particularly like the Help a Horse section which features a different horsey charity in each issue. My biggest problem with this magazine is the happy-go-lucky, overly simple writing style. You know, too much enthusiasm sometimes. I think Young Rider would be much better if it had a little more mature writing. Although much of it is suitable for regular riders, the Horse & Pony Problems section is frustrating for those who only take lessons and don't have the opportunity to select and practice daily excercises; it is definitely assumed you have your own horse. The Me & My Horse photos and some of the articles are made for horse owners as well. Overall, though, Young Rider is a nice magazine which I really do enjoy, and if you're an eight-year-old girl who has a pony, you'll really love Young Rider. ;-)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love This Magazine!
    My 6 year old horse-loving daughter adores this magazine! She can read the articles and stories--they are well written and interesting and not too old for her, and she loves the games, quizzes and, of course, the pictures! She likes it so well we are going to get her a subscription of her own, as we have been having trouble finding it in the horse stores. It is wonderful someone makes a great magazine for the younger horse-lovers!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!
    This is an excellent magazine!! It's well-rounded for both english and western riders and has a good bit of grooming, medical care, and other topics related to horses tied in as well!And if focuses on a different educational club or a rescue organization nearly every month. Of course, it isn't perfect and can't teach you how to completly take care of or ride a horse, but what magazine, or book for that matter, can? Not even videos! You have to go out and get instruction! So, I don't think that just because it only hits the surface of some topics, that it should have a star taken. Excellent choice for the younger equestrians.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome mag!!!!!
    Awesome mag for kids!!!great buy!lots of good articles,even if you don't have a horse of your own. Always has cool posters and stories that kids can relate to. Don't hesitate to buy this mag for any horseloving kid!Fun way to learn interesting things and facts about horses that you never knew. it's packed with contests too!only downside is that it is a bi-monthly mag (so good I wish it came more often!). Once again, it's a great choice for any child interested in horses. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Don't get fooled
    There are currently two major surf magazines, SURFER and SURFING. Guess what? They are owned by the same magazine conglomerate, Primedia. Surfer used to bill itself as the "Bible" of the sport, and for a long time it was. But now, in keeping with the times of oligopolies and the hyper-commercialization of surfing, Surfer, along with it's younger partner, Surfing, is a piece of toilet paper. The editorial content has been dumbed down to general public intelligence, the photos are not as spectacular as they used to be, and the characters they cover, the surfers themselves are nowhere near as interesting and colorful as they used to be. Blah...

    5-0 out of 5 stars BEST MAG EVER!
    I've had a subscripiton for 5 years now and Surfer is by far the best mag I've ever read, i could read it front to back or back to front 10 times and it would still be the best. It's almost a prescipition than a subscripition!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Surfer Mag
    By far the most comprehensive magazine on surfing, comes out monthly with news on surfing contests, changes in the surfing industry, and all the ins & outs you could think of, an amazing magazine, the only mag you should have if you are a surfer.

    I would like to have a backnumber, this means privious SURFER magazine, for instance, 1998/Dec, 1999/Jan, because either magazine may have a poster including the magazine. I would like to have the poster.So if I have to contact the publisher of the magazine SURFER, because I don't know which edition have the poster. What should I do to get the old edition magazine?

    5-0 out of 5 stars HI is the best horse magazine.
    Horse Illustrated is the best horse magazine. Each issue has fantastic breed profiles, a poster, western and english tips, Q&A sections, and a whole section on horsey things to buy (for you, your horse, friends, or family members who are horse crazy). I've been subscribing to this magazine for a year and love it. It's a perfect magazine for kids and adults alike.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Horse Illustrated
    Horse Illustrated really is "the magazine for responsible horse owners". It has everything you need, including vet, training, riding (english & western), barn care, and every day horse care. They have useful information with a touch of humor. I always learn something new to try around the barn, wether its organizing your tack room or the "how-to's" of the horse world. I LOVE THIS MAGAZINE!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A read from Cover to the Last Page
    My niece and I love this magazine. I love it it for the articles, and since she is 8 years old, she lives the posters inside. Whether you ride English, Western or even with an Australian saddle, every horse person will enjoy the magazine. I also get Dog Fancy, and Horse Illustarted is set up the same way: Long informative articles, as well as short newsworthy 2 papragraph stories. I enjoy reading about the different breeds that I do not know much about. Since I ride a quarter horse, it is interesting to learn about other breeds.

    5-0 out of 5 stars GOOD!!!!!!!!
    Absolutely brilliant! This magazine has kept me a loyal subscriber for nearly three years now. Although I am an artist, and half the reason I subscribe is for the glorious photographs (much of which is photograohed by Bob Langrish) I also love the articles. Cindy Hale's "Life With Horses" daily columns are always filled with humor about her horses daily lives, "Vet Files" is very informative about horse health, "Western Roundup" and "English Arena" (both updated) are in-depth with English and Western riding tips of all desciplines, and several more columns and articles I have found enjoyable and helpful. This magazine should go to anyone who owns horses or not! I would recomend Young Rider too. It's very good and I loved it especially the daily contests!

    3-0 out of 5 stars A nice magazine for amateurs or younger horse enthusiasts.
    I began subscribing to Horse Illustrated in elementary school, and it really was a great introduction to the horse world for me. It taught me a lot of the basics. But to be honest, the only reason I continue that subscription today, as a college student, is for the photography (which is absolutely wonderful!). I'm an artist, and find the pictures in this magazine just unbeatable for reference and inspiration.

    For the knowledgable equestrian, however, this magazine isn't really all that useful. The articles give surface-level information and the magazine as a whole is not focused on any specific aspect of the horse world. It's a fairly decent all-arounder for newbies and amateurs.

    I would also caution any reader to take the information given in Horse Illustrated's articles with a grain of salt and always check other sources. I was rather dismayed to see a recent "Breed Profile" on the much-hyped "Gypsy Vanner Horse." This really isn't a breed at all. It's a [very successful] marketing scheme, and the name is actually trademarked. Artists have been faced with legal action for rendering portrayals of "Gypsy Vanners." They're beautiful horses, yes, but putting them forth as a breed is simply a fallacy.

    That's just one of many examples, and this isn't the place to expound on every gripe I've ever had with the magazine. Most of the articles are of decent quality, though they don't go too in-depth, and would be a good foundation of equine knowledge to build upon. If you're looking for something more specialized or academic, however, you won't find what you're looking for here. For English riders I'd highly recommend Practical Horseman instead, and Equus is a pretty good all-around magazine with an emphasis on horse care. ... Read more

Along with practical advice, equipment reviews, and beautiful color photos, Backpacker offers monthly tips on where to hike, with longer features on newly opened or highlighted areas, plus several shorter hike recommendations, complete with directions, trail maps, and information on altitude, difficulty, special sights, crowd levels, and contact numbers. --Ben Reese ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Flawless Publication for Lovers of the Great Outdoors
    Backpacker is an outstanding magazine for those who love to hike and also for those who enjoy paging through a magazine containing lots of enticing photographs of nature scenes. This magazine is, first and foremost, a publication for lovers of the outdoors and the sport of backpacking. But the pictures of mountains, lakes, streams, wildlife, etc., are enticing to anyone. They can quickly convert the non- outdoorsman type into a nature lover.

    Besides the great pictures, Backpacker is also excellent for its product testing and for its advice and educational material. Backpacks, mountain bikes, tents, and so forth might seem like simple products, but you would be surprised at how many different varieties and options are available for this type of merchandise. Backpacker describes different items available for sale, complete with web site address and phone# so you can make a purchase, and it often conducts tests to see how the different products stack up. It also offers educational material on the sport of backpacking and general advice on such topics as food, exercise, proper nutrition, first aid, etc.

    Backpacker averages between 90 and 120 pages in total length and it's published 9 times per year (three of the issues combine two months into one). It's one of the few special interest magazines I have read that has something to offer most anyone. Even if you don't like hiking, there is still a good chance you will enjoy thumbing through the pages of Backpacker, if nothing else, just to enjoy the great photography.

    Overall, this is an outstanding outdoor publication. The articles, the personal stories, the advice, the photos, and the educational material all add up to a perfect magazine for anyone who loves to partake in outdoor activity or who just enjoys looking at the stunning photos. 5+ stars to Backpacker!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine!
    Backpacker truly is an awesome magazine. My husband has been getting it for a while now and we both love reading it. We're not real sporty people, but we do like to hike and camp, and this magazine offers so much for us. I give it the absolute best rating! I'd suggest anyone who loves the outdoors, and hiking at any level, to check it out.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Not just for backpackers
    This magazine covers a lot more than just backpacking. It is a valuable reference for all types of outdoor pursuits. The travel destination suggestions are creative, but seem a bit unreasonable if you are not stocked up with vacation time. The gear reviews are thorough and fair, but could be more extensive in terms of the number of manufacturers and models tested. The fitness advice, while directed mostly to walking a trail carrying a load, can easily be generalized to keep you in shape. Backpacker doesn't contain as many narratives as some of the other outdoor magazines, but this can be taken as either a positive or negative.

    Even with these criticisms it is still a great magazine. If you like to do stuff outdoors in any season I highly suggest it. It will open your eyes to other activities you can try, places you can go, and gear you can use.

    I've only been a reader for one year, but over the course of that year I've been nothing but impressed by this magazine. I just renewed my subscription for a second year.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A 10 star publication
    This is the most complete publication for any walker, hiker, backpacker that we have found and the August 2002 interview with Colin Fletcher reminded me of why we subscribe and look for each new issue with such intense anticipation.

    The Departments are: Backtalk where readers provide their feedback, Signposts which deals with politics and social news stories of interest to the readers, Body Language which deals with mind body spirit aspects of the sport.
    Wild Things which is subtitled The Nature of It All. Moveable Feast which deals with food and has some great recipes that are not only healthy but taste awesome. In the August issue they have a great Almond Bar recipe.

    Week End Wilderness is the section where they list great week end outings in various parts of the country. Outfitting is all about clothing choices that make walking, hiking etc enjoyable and safe.

    Get Out More 2002 is a section where readers share places they have hiked and what made it special. Know How is about what it says.......Skill techniques and tips. Like leaving the tent behind and saving the extra weight and sleeping under the stars in a better warm sleeping bag set-up. Backcountry is about tales from the trails.

    The Special Section carries feature articles on backpacking and things like kayaking, snow trips, fishing and backpacking etc. As well as issues like new equipment and hidden away places for hiking that most people ignore.

    It is simply the best magazine on the subject and one any serious hiker, walker, backpacker all seasons enthusiast will have in their home.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The only choice really
    No other outdoor magazine comes close to Backpacker to answer the questions of where to go and what to take. There are more destination suggestions in a year than one could ever visit in a lifetime, all with accompanying directions, notes, climate, visitation levels, etc.

    When it comes to gear, the editors work hard to keep quality AND cost in mind and are careful to test less-well-known, but worthy brands. This is a departure from other outdoors mags that seem to sell recommendations to high retail price manufacturers. Backpacker even did a review of the gear available in large discount stores... ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars I¿d rather be sailing than reading about it, but....
    When the storm blows, or I am languishing in the doldrums, I pull out one of the three "boating" magazines I get: Sail, Sailing and Soundings. "Sail's" top quality, above, the other two, is in the areas of technical advice. It always has a solid information on cruising tips and weather mixed with a smattering of great sea stories.

    The destinations that are profiled, for potential cruising destinations, always becharm me with the thought that one day I too will anchor in Italy, or Maine, or Western Canada, or..... Really, who among us wouldn't be tempted with the thought of a layover at Bora Bora .

    Some of the reviews, especially in electronics, have been disappointing. The reviews give an overall comprehension of what is offered in the market today, but, sadly, make no recommendations. For example, the article that was to "review" seven color plotters (April 2003) ended the article with no recommendations, and then gave an insubstantial kiss off by saying, "it is disconcerting to contemplate how many brands and models there are to choose from". In other words, "you're on your own".

    Regarding evaluations of new and used boats, I find "Sailing" to be more comprehensive and helpful.

    Don't get me wrong "Sail" is still a worthwhile read and has excellent advise for any 'salt' or 'beginner'. Recommended. 3.5 stars

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ahoy Mates.....
    This review refers to "Sail" Magazine.....

    Whether you are a novice sailor, racer ,or an old hand at it, whether you own a boat, are thinking of buying one or just like to go along for the ride, this magazine covers it all.

    There's all kinds of useful tips and information for anyone who just loves boats or being out on the water. There are articles ranging from handling weather and mechanical problems to keeping your pets aboard. The latest in gear and equipment, America's Cup Schedules,basic cruising tips,articles written by people just like you, who just love being out there(these are great as they give good ideas for living aboard and places to cruise), are all in here.

    Thinking of buying a boat? You'll find feature articles on new and older boats. There is even a classified section in the back, that will give you a good idea of the price ranges for the type of boat your looking for.

    Day Sailor, Cruiser, Racer or Live Aboard, you'll look foward to every issue........Laurie

    4-0 out of 5 stars I love those boats.
    Being stuck in Minnesota with our six months winters, Sail magazine is a real pleasure. I knew nothing about sailing before subscribing and now I seem to know lots of things. I like this mag. and the stories of exotic places which they sail to. I think if you do a lot of coastal/blue water sailing, this magazine would be a smart bet.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A fine monthly with lots to like!
    Another oldie but goodie. I subscribed as a kid and wish I had my mid 1970's issues. A friend bought me a subscription several years ago, and I renew it each year. I'll save the ones I currently have and enjoy them a generation from now.

    Since Baseball Digest is a monthly, it's not nearly as timely as, say, Sports Illustrated, and the articles are fairly light and breezy in nature. But contributing editors like John Kuenster always have something interesting to say, and the magazine excels at digging up somewhat obscure players from previous decades and updating them. A great example was the outstanding and somewhat controversial relief pitcher Mike Marshall--I read a truly excellent article in B. D. about Marshall a couple of months ago which rivaled, in my estimation, anything recently published by S.I. and The Sporting News.

    There are "regulars" in the magazine, including "The Fans Speak Out" (letters to the editor), Baseball Quick Quiz, which is very challenging, and the crossword puzzle. There are charts, graphs and stats which always inform without being overbearing, and the black and white photos inside are usually good and the color cover is always excellent. Again, because it's a monthly, Baseball Digest isn't quite as timely as the aforementioned fine publications, but it's great for the devoted baseball fan who enjoys following his/her favorite sport year round--there's never a drop in quality during the off-season. Great for the youngest fan all the way to the oldest, and designed that way--you'll never have to worry about the content of what your son or daughter will read in the publication.

    4-0 out of 5 stars REAL Baseball magazine
    If you want updates on last week's games -- read SI or USA Today. If you want slick writing and glossy photos, read SI. If you want to immerse yourself in the culture and history of the game, get this. It is the thinking person's baseball magazine, filled with bios of legends, new slants on stats and trends and interviews with today's stars.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A GREAT ASSET FOR BASEBALL FANS !
    A great great asset for a real baseball fan. Very interesting reviews of the past, great games, players, statistics, interviews and such as things you really love it. I got the subscription and I recommended a lot because they're a serious company behind this marvelous magazine.
    I enjoy a lot reading my BD magazine and you'll do !
    Let's read it and say PLAY BALL !

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Gift For The Baseball Fan
    If you have a friend, relative or other love who just adores baseball and wants to keep up with what's happening in the leagues, here is a great digest sized magazine to get. It's packed to the gills with nothing but pure baseball news and stats. What I like about baseball digest is that it often lists oddball stats, things like "batters who hit over 400 homeruns but also had a high percentage rate of strikeouts", and it keeps up with the more common stats like "All Time Hit's Leaders", "All ERA Leaders", etc. In other words, its a magazine that the majority of baseball fans will enjoy reading. I use to have a subscription and I may just take Amazon up on this offer. I love Baseball and I love this magazine. I use it to help me make decisions on who to invest in when it comes to baseball cards, and it has paid off tremendously!!! So not only can you enjoy keeping up with what's happening in America's Favorite Pastime, but you can find out which pitcher is averaging those 150 strikeouts a year, or who is averaging those 35 homers a year, and if you or someone you know collects baseball cards, you'll know who to buy ahead of time. Now if you do collect cards, please allow me to recommend Beckett Baseball Card Monthly, which, by the way, Amazon.com also has a cool subscription deal on.

    5-0 out of 5 stars For the true baseball enthusiast

    Well worth the money...great pictures, articles, interviews and tennis tips.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Gives You Anticipation, But Nothing Much Inside For The $$$
    I always look forward to the next issue of Tennis magazine, I am an avid tennis player. I buy it from time to time, and look through it whenever I get the chance.

    Tennis magazine has some great interviews with the top players of the game, fitness tips, and some recommendations to tennis resorts. I also find the instruction segments helpful with my game.

    The only problem with this magazine is it's consistency. Just like my game, it doesn't bring good results all the time. Some issues are outstanding and packed with great tennis information, while other issues have no more than a handful of interesting articles. I remember even one year ago, there was a great feature in the 'Gear' section of the magazine, where Tennis magazine would show all of the contents of a pro player's bag. For some reason, they don't have that anymore, have they run out of players?

    Overall, Tennis magazine can be a 5 star magazine, and it sometimes is, but it needs to be more consistent.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Tennis Freaks like ME!!
    Tennis magazine is just great. Every issue there are great pictures and stories telling about tournaments. Also it provides great tips about how to play tennis and how to hold a racquet. Chrissie's page gives full detail of some of the struggle she and other's have gone through in tennis. I rate this 5 stars because I can't wait to get the next issue and read about what is happening in the Tennis World.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good for players and fans alike
    Tennis magazine targets tennis players, with excellent advice concerning racquets, strokes, fitness, tennis resorts, and so forth. Much of the advice comes from pro players and helpful photos are frequently included. I'm not an active player, but subscribe to Tennis for its unparalleled coverage of the pro tennis world. Each issue typically has an interview with a top player. These interviews are usually nicely detailed and well-written. They also offer extensive coverage of upcoming tournaments, especially the grand slams. For example, they proffer odds on the top players winning the slams. Finally, Tennis reviews recent winners at smaller tournaments, the pro rankings, etc. A nicely balanced magazine that should appeal to players and fans. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Top-notch magazine for English riders at all levels!
    Of all the horse magazines I've read and subscribed to over the years, "Practical Horseman" is by far the best for English riders (particularly those involved with dressage, show jumping, hunter jumping, and cross-country jumping). They publish consistently high-quality "how to" articles on a variety of riding and training topics, with information for both advanced and beginning riders. These articles are usually accompanied by clear, step-by-step photographs, which are very helpful. In addition, there are articles on horse care, stable management, tack upkeep, rider fitness, current news from the show world, and more. Keep in mind, though, that everything is geared entirely toward English riders, so if you participate in Western disciplines you'll want to look elsewhere.

    Another upside of the magazine is its great photography. While not as artistic in nature as "Horse Illustrated" (a beautiful magazine picture-wise, but much more elementary in article content than "Practical Horseman"), there are plenty of really great shots of top horses and riders in training and competition. These serve as good reference photos for the artistically inclined.

    My one gripe is the overwhelming quantity of ads. Of course more and more magazines are including more and more advertisements as time goes on, but for some reason it particularly stands out for me with "Pratical Horseman." It often seems like the magazine is 2/3 advertising and 1/3 actual content. However, I won't knock any points off my rating, as this doesn't reflect on the quality of the articles themselves, which are excellent. If you're an English rider, no matter what your level of training and skill, this is an invaluable source of information.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Practically the best
    I've been subscribing to PH for at least 10 years now. I try to keep an open mind, but I can really say it's the best English-riding periodical (perhaps riding in general!) magazine. It covers results and big events, top rider "clinics" and articles, showing, stable management ideas, current issues, horse care, and health. It's a must for anyone riding hunters, jumpers, eventing or dressage in or out of the showring. They have a great monthly feauture called "Begining Adult Rider" which is step-by-step riding instruction geared to people taking up riding as adults, so it's not totally geared to serious riders. Anyone who owns or rides should seriously consider an investment into this.

    5-0 out of 5 stars the practical horseman
    i love practical horseman although i dont have my own subscription(which may be happening soon)my trainer brings them and gives them to me! i love them theres so many helpful tips about everything and i love it when they critque the 4 riders...ITS THE BEST! i reccomend the magazine all the way!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best available magazine for serious english riders
    This magazine is filled with step-by-step articles to help serious english riders become the best they can be. Not only does it include pointers for riding, it also has horse care information for those that have their own horse to take care of. There are tips from top riders. I strongly recommend this magazine for the english rider who is striving to reach the top.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine
    This is a great magazine for horse loves young and old. It has great articles for english riders! As well as articles on health. It really is factual and a great read. This is a great magazine! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Standard for Aviation Journalism
    What can I say? This magazine is the gold standard for popular aviation journalism.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Gold standard for General Aviation
    Flying magazine sets a gold standard for general aviation magazines. It is not perfect -- the maybe cozy relationship with advertisers, it's hard to do one thing perfectly when you cover such a large subject, airline pilots detect a bias against big iron, sometimes it is a little too glossy -- but it covers the whole world of piston and personal airplane flying.

    In the past, Len Morgan and Richard Bach and Ernie Gann and many others wrote for Flying. Right now, for my money, the best writers are Lane Wallace and Peter Garrison. With Flying, you get them every month. For private pilots, the only magazine that directly compares is the excellent AOPA Pilot, but you will get that magazine if you join AOPA. The best way to get Flying is to subscribe, as it's a huge savings over buying it retail. If you are not sure it's for you, go buy one at the supermarket or bookstore and then come back and subscribe for a year.

    4-0 out of 5 stars the standard general aviation publication
    Flying is the major magazine for the general aviation community. It features a number of regular writers and columnists who are renowned in aviation circles (possibly because of their role with Flying). Flying's safety features and reviews of the latest technology are unbeatable, and they do make at least a token effort to try to cover the gamut of general aviation. Nonetheless, the magazine does seem most focused on the corporate aviation world of jets and heavy multi-engine props, probably because that is where the big ad dollars are (note that they practically give away the magazine, and in fact it is free on airline shuttle flights nationwide). Private Pilot or Plane & Pilot might be good choices for most people interested in true general aviation.

    5-0 out of 5 stars AirlineBiz.Com Magazine Review
    Great magazine for private and professional pilots.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The BEST general aviation magazine!
    This is one of the best aviation magazines, it has great photography, well written articles and relevant information to the airmen, both beginner and professional.

    Len Morgan's articles were among my favorites, but he does not write for flying any more.

    Being a suscriber for more than twenty years, and have enjoyed every single issue. Once you subscribe, make sure you keep them, it's a joy to re-read some of the old ones.

    It is mostly focused on "General Aviation", so it's not the place to look for commercial / airliners.

    If you love aviation, like to fly or are just a fan of airplanes, you will love Flying Magazine. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Part how-to, part sport coverage, part schlock
    Grappling magazine tries to wear many hats. With regular features by such grappling greats Kid Peligrio and Royler Gracie, they offer great general training advice. Every month, they carry articles with interviews and techniques from top competitors around the globe (Gokor, Tito, JJ, BJ Penn). Some of the techniques are great. Some... not so much so, in that they seem awkward, impractical, or very poorly photographed/described. They also feature coverage of open grappling (NAGA, Grappler's Quest), BJJ, and freestyle/greco wrestling. Sports Illustrated gives grapplers no love, but Grappling tries to pick up the slack.

    However, Grappling also aspires to have the best MMA (mixed martial arts) coverage in a magazine. They do have EXCELLENT pictures and generally good blow-by-blow recaps. They're also one of the best sources for information about less-broadcast shows like Gladiator's Challenge. The bad part is that the shows they're reviewing are usually two or three behind current, which isn't great for a fast changing sport.

    The biggest downsides of Grappling are incredibly bad editing and Matt Furey. The editing often leaves you scratching your head wondering what the author REALLY meant, or flipping through the whole magazine looking for the other half of the article you were reading. Matt Furey seems to have some special relationship with CFW that allows him to continuously appear as a feature, sometimes as a special article, and throughout the magazine in ads. For a grappler with so-so credentials, he's omnipresent and comes across as pretty cocky.

    All in all, a good magazine, and I never miss an issue. I just ignore Matt and the editing. ... Read more
