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 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

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 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.

3-0 out of 5 stars For that rare person or the wannabe out there
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!).

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 Chris Evert has done an amazing job
Tennis champion Chris Evert has done an excellent job of creating a magazine that encompasses the world of Tennis in a monthly magazine. The magazine rarely misses a stitch, with features on hotels and resorts that have impressive tennis facilities, descriptions and ratings of tennis gear, profiles of recent Grand Slam champions, and the most recent ATP and WTA rankings.

The magazine is a necessity for anyone who loves to play or follow the sport of tennis.

5-0 out of 5 stars Insiders view into tennis...
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.

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

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

I had the chance to read some issue when I was in California and I found it quite interesting.
When I moved back to my country I experienced hard times on subscribing to it. The customer service is poor. The web system for international subscription wasn't working properly so I wasn't able to proceed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent outdoor magazine
I have been reading this magazine for a number of years.It is a classic hunting and fishing magazine with interesting articles that are filled with useful information.Patrick McManus's "Last Laugh" is alone easily worth the cover price.If you haven't read Pat, you need to.

3-0 out of 5 stars 3.5 Stars. One reason to subscribe "Patrick McManus"
If you've never heard of Pat, you are really missing out. He has a host of books which are a refinement of his past humor articles. (He used to write for "Field & Stream" and now writes for Outdoor Life.)If you can't wait for him to publish his stories in book form, subscribe to this magazine. Otherwise the rest of the magazine's stories while interesting get repetative. How many stories of "the buck walked through the woods like crackling thunder" can you take. I suppose if you are a hunter, and all the ones I know tell these tales, you'll never get tired of reading about others great hunting trips. ... Read more

A MUST READ!! THIS MAGAZINE GIVES YOU THE MOST UP TO DATE INFORMATION ON THE POWERLIFTING CIRCUIT. GIVES GREAT LIFTING AND FITNESS TIPS TO BOOT!!! THIS MAGAZINE SHOULD HAVE MAIN STREAM PUBLICATION AND DISTRIBUTION.

4-0 out of 5 stars Powerlifting USA magazine review
I've been subscribing to PLUSA since 1984, the same year I started powerlifting. It contains a wealth of information for the beginner to the elite lifter. Interesting strength articles, interviews with the champions of the sport, results from meets, and the list of upcoming contests. It also contains all the different powerlifting vendors for your equipment needs. Its a must to have this magazine for anyone into or starting out with powerlifting. Its the ORIGINAL mag!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine
Great articles for the seasoned and beginning powerlifter. Lots of useful, specific information on increasing lifts. inclusive listing of upcoming p.l meets across usa! i have nt let my subscription lapsein over 5 years and i refer to old issues for training ideas.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great mag with one exception
This is a great magazine with the exception of articles written by Herb Glossberger, who seems to only write articles about the people at LA Lifting Club (where he works out). If you overlook that aspect, the mag is great. The knowledge that can be gained simply by reading the articles written by Louie Simmons and Dave Tate. Well worth it. It also cannot be purchased in your local magazine store.

4-0 out of 5 stars Does the job
Not too many magazines of this genre, so one is a captured audience for the most part. Does a great job in reporting scores and records. Has informational articles written in down-to-earth style, some very helpful to the average powerlifter, others a bit sketchy such as one that featured nutrition for the athlete. It stopped short just when you expected to get some really concrete information. Otherwise, an upbeat, albeit simple journal that is gratefully skimpy on flashy ads and promos. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars For the serious golfer
Golf tips magazine is one of the most aptly titled magazines available today. It is chock full of heavily-illustrated exercises and other tips for serious golfers to improve their games.

There are a number of golf magazines on the newstand today. Most of them rely on a lifestyle format relying more heavily on lifestyle-type stories about today's hot golfers and the courses they play. Most of them include a brief game tip or two but seem aimed at the casual duffer.

Golf Tips, on the other hand, features almost nothing but heavily illustrated tips on improving one's swing, eliminating mistakes and putting better. It also is heavily loaded with features on the latest equipment technology. Each issue also seems to feature an article on the technical aspects of a selected major golf course. The articles are written with terminology that serious golfers will understand but that may confuse the weekend player. Judging by the amount of advertising in its early issues, this magazine also appears to be financially healthy.

If a reader wants to read about the PGA Tour's superstars, this magazine is not for him/her. But if s/he plans to be one of those superstars, Golf Tips is a good match.

5-0 out of 5 stars Four Skateboard Magazines
This is a (very brief) review of four different skateboard magazines. To make sure that previous experience was not biasing my opinion (too much), I got four issues that were out at the same time. The magazines are Transworld Skateboarding (TS), Thrasher Magazine (TM), Skateboarder (SM) and SBC Skateboard (SS).

For photography, TS probably takes the lead. For the skateboard lifestyle, the edge goes to TM. For those who like to read text, SM has the most. Surprisingly, the best is probably SS, which is a balanced combination of all three styles.

Before spending too much on any one magazine, I suggest you try the same so that you get THE magazine you want.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Skaters w/out any other life (like me!)
Transworld is worth the Money! It's the price of a regular magazine, but 3 times as thick! Sure there are a lot of adds in it, but hey, they're all just pictures of skaters doing tricks! Also, there are cool articles, interviews, and coverage of tours. Any skater with {money} should buy this. SKATEBOARDNG IS NOT A SPORT!!!!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Transworld Skateboarding
The amount of skateboarding fans are increasing rapidly in the United States. If you are one of those fans, like myself, I highly suggest this magazine. It is well worth the cost. It covers everything such as pro spotlights, action shots, ads, trick tips and more. I have been reading this magazing for quite a while now, and plan on continuing my love for skateboarding. Subscribe now, you WILL be satisfied!

4-0 out of 5 stars pretty nice
I bought this mag at a grocery store. I'm fascinated with skateboarding. It's a really thick magazine. Probably because nearly everything in it are ads. That's annoying. Good pictures, though. Anyway, it's pretty nice. I'd recommend looking around at other magazines like "Thrasher", "Skateboarding", etc. Enjoy!

5-0 out of 5 stars All a skater needs.
This magazine is exactly what a skating mag should be. Pics, worked in advertisements, nice little poster tear-outs, "skater slang", interviews, top 5's, and all sorts of other goodies you will enjoy. ... Read more

From Amazon.com

Long known as the "bible of baseball," The Sporting News remains a weekly treasure trove of information for the voracious sports fan. In-depth articles are balanced with easily digestible sidebars and columns, and team-by-team capsules (contributed by local writers) include wrap-ups of the week's action and plenty of stats for fantasy addicts. MLB, NBA, and NFL team capsules are maintained through the off-season. The emphasis, of course, is on the big three--baseball, basketball, and football--but hockey and NASCAR receive their due as well. Special preseason issues are published for many sports. --David Horiuchi ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Magazine Good, Cust Service poor
The magazine itself is quite good. Unlike SI, Sporting News does not cater to perosnalities and have horrible bias. SI is really bad that way. But SN has problems with Cust Service. I had 3-4 issue difference in what I had and what I should have had, but it never got corrected. So I did not review

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice mag
The Sporting News focuses on MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, and men's collegiate football and basketball, with the occasional odd article or bit on golf. Even the major general articles (Best SportsTown, for instance) focuses on these sports.

In addition, the mag offers a good dose of stats and breaks down each sport by team, so you can read up on your fav or dig out the fantasy info you need.

Also, TSN highlights most major sporting events during the year, such as the NCAA hoop tourney, Super Bowl, Spring Training, etc., and includes additional material during their regular issues.

This is the best all-purpose sports weekly in my opinion.

3-0 out of 5 stars Former Subscriber....Here's Why
I will not argue with anyone that "Sporting News" probably provides more statistics on more sports than any other multi-sport magazine. It is about SPORTS and not much else, which is how it should be. It doesn't stray into politics or swimsuits like "Sports Illustrated." Nor is it too full of itself as is "ESPN-The Magazine." It provides straightforward articles about a number of sports, with a few opinion pieces thrown into the fray. Ken Rosenthal gets baseball better than anybody out there, including Bob Costas. The rest of the columnists are good as well.

My main gripe with "Sporting News" is that they don't listen to their customers. I tried repeatedly to have my address corrected on my subscription but I could never seem to make the boys at 'News understand what was wrong. To me, an incorrect address is easily fixed. Unfortunately, "Sporting News" doesn't spend enough time listening to their customers. I ended up ending my subscription and, guess what, never received my refund that I was promised. I used to subscribe to "Sports Illustrated" also. I never had any problems with their customer service.

Another problem that I have is the way they handled the whole NCAA BCS. They praised USC as the DEFINITIVE national champion and blew off LSU as posers. However, if you purchased a copy of "Sporting News" in Louisiana or Oklahoma(surprise, surprise), there was a cover acknowledging LSU as the #1 team in the nation. But ONLY on the cover. What's up with that!

In closing, I recommend "Sports Illustrated" over "Sporting News" for the simple fact that they cater to their customers better. Article wise, "Sporting News" is miles above the competition.

1-0 out of 5 stars interesting but completely wrong
The only reason I subscribe is i found a free subscription somewhere. The magazine had some interesting articles but Most of the time they are just completely wrong. One example was a preview to last years NFL draft. They talked up Terrell Suggs in a long article to the point he was definetely going at the latest third even with the quaterback needy Bengals and the lions who really wanted rogers were finding it hard to take a pass at him. Where does he end up? Going to the Baltimore Ravens. Not even his homestate team the cardinals wanted him. Another example is the cover of the their college football preview. They picked Auburn to be their national champions. I don't follow college football enough to understand, but I know auburn lost its first two games and doesn't look much like a team vying for a national championship. I'm not saying that Sports Illustrated is perfect and their picks are always accurate, but they seem to me to get a better grasp on sports. Yes Sports Illustrated has ads, but looking through my last issue it doesn't seem that The Sporting News has any less. It takes a while till you get at least two consecutive non ad pages. It seems like they both have the same amount. And even if One had more ads than the others is it that hard to really turn the page? Are you that lazy? The articles are the important thing and not many people say that the ones in Sporting news are better. I'd like to hear what some people thought were so nonsports related in sports illustrated. I personally haven't seen anything non sports relat1ed. Yes they have reviews of the occasional sports themed book and movie but they are usually short just letting fans know whether its worth it.

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Sports Magazines Available
The Sporting News is one of my favorite sports magazines for several reasons. First and foremost, I like the fact that the Sporting News covers ONLY sports. It doesn't get sidetracked with lengthy articles about other subjects. It sticks exclusively to the subject of sports.

Another great thing about the Sporting News is that it contains very little advertising. Other sports publications, like Sports Illustrated, rely heavily on advertising to cover expenses. The Sporting News manages to remain virtually free of advertisements (there are only about 10 pages worth of ads in each issue), which means there are more pages devoted to sports coverage.

Major sports (baseball, football, basketball, hockey, NASCAR, etc.) receive coverage in every single issue. Even during the off- season, you can still read about your favorite sport. And during the time when a professional sport is in- season, the coverage is even greater, with team by team comparisons and statistics each week.

The Sporting News prints each issue the same length- 60 pages. They do this for all of the regular weekly issues. This is nice, because it makes the magazine more consistent. You know, every week, exactly what to expect in terms of length and in terms of the sports that will be covered.

There are a lot of statistical measures and tables in this magazine. This is fine with me, since I enjoy these lists of data. But I know that some readers will get annoyed with them after a while. They can sometimes get a little silly (for example, the magazine sometimes lists obscure stats like "highest batting averages against left- handed pitching during interleague play"), but most of them are helpful and fans will enjoy reading them.

This is a very good sports magazine. And with a price like the one offered in Amazon.com, it's very affordable: only 60 cents per copy for all this sports information. I recommend signing up now. If you like sports, you won't regret it! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars It has it all !!
I am a long time Nascar lover/watcher and I'm not really a redneck either. Born in New Mexico, but have lived all my adult life in Micigan. Here in Michigan, we have two race dates a year at our Michigan track and they are sold out at ever Nascar event. When the races are here in Michigan, as well as all Nascar tracks, Nascar Illustrated covers each event in such detail that you can imagine your actually there. The camera shots, the well written articles, take you to the track, let you talk to the drivers, crew chiefs, crew member and much more, of the the things you are interested most in. Sure the news is somewhat dated, but is more detailed and it gives you a chance to read, research and record all of the events that take place. After all, reading is at your speed, not some fast talking anouncers. But the best thing about NI, is the visits paid to racers and owners homes. The photography is breath taking, the interviews cutting and to the point. A beautiful way to learn about our heroes, its like you are right there, at home, on the plane or motorhome and then at the track, in the pits, in the R&D shop finding out about the race cars of today as well as those of tomorrows, even behind the wheel. The Magazine really is Nascar Illustrated, from front to back, it's one of the finest magazines I've ever seen/read,I now have my own subscription to Nascar Illustrated. Get yours now, you do not want to miss any of the news and views.

3-0 out of 5 stars WELTERWEIGHTS
Everybody and their Mama seem to jump on the Vernon Forrest Ban Wagon till ( Mr. Noboby ) Ricardo Mayorga woke him up, brought him down to earth, then put him to sleep. The first Mosley fight Forrest flat out won, the second well!!! it really could have gone either way. Forrest signs to fight Mayorga and starts reading the clippings thinking I am a bad ass, then POW he gets his lights put out. I think Mayorga will do it again only around the 10 or 11 round, Forrest will take a little beatin ouch!, like Forrest he came from no where only alot NO WHERE and did just what Forrest did win a belt, a WBC 147 lb Welterweight Championship Belt. Above all it was to add to his WBA Belt that he already owned before even signing to the fight....ok,ok enough anyway when is the Ring going to give him the "Ring Belt" and make him fighter of the year or are they going to make him prove himself over again. To think what Mosley couldn't do in 3 fights Mister Mayorga did in a 1/2 fight.

2-0 out of 5 stars Expensive and repetitive
First thing to note is that "The Ring" doesn't get you 12 issues anymore. Without much fanfare the "Bible of Boxing" went bi-monthly instead of monthly, adding "The Ring EXTRA" in the other months. Of course, it also *costs* extra; a lot extra even with Amazon's great prices. Yeah, the pages are glossy now, but that's a steep increase over the price from just a couple of years ago that included 12 issues. (They apparently refuse to try to sell ad space other than to a few boxing-specific companies.)

Further, the photographs and anecdotes repeat all the time (expect a Camacho or Duran joke, or both, every issue, and they've been using the same Tyson photos for over three years), and you can count on at least one if not two stories on old, historically irrelevant boxers. (A nod to boxing's graying fanbase no doubt, but that doesn't make 43-17 boxers from the 1940s any more exciting.) Still, credit "The Ring" for explaining its fighter rankings and *usually* remembering that even if it can't be timely because of its format it can be analytical.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Bible
With all the turmoil that surrounds the fight game, The Ring has remained a constant since the 20's.

The joke that is the alphabet soup is being put in it's place by The Ring's champions. All these IBF, WBA, WBC. NABF....titles do not mean squat in the minds of true boxing fans. The Ring has a list of champions who can be really called that. Holding a belt for any of these alphabet organizations isn't necessary to be recognized aa a champ in the eyes of The Ring. A colored layout coupled with new features has the ring swinging still after 80 years!

The bible doesn't lie!

5-0 out of 5 stars Always the best!
The Ring is by far the best boxing magazine out there. I have been reading it forever and it always informs and entertains. If you are a boxing fan there is no other magazine that comes close.

4-0 out of 5 stars Running Times is the runner's best resource
I am writing because I believe the most recent review of Running Times paints an inaccurate picture of the magazine. From my perspective, Running Times is a much better resource than Runner's World for serious runners, serious athletes, AND the rest of us who are serious ABOUT our running.

My experiences with Runner's World make me think about the thousands of people who "run" road races all across the United States. I put run in quotes because there are plenty of people who run races to finish the race, very noble goal. Runner's World provides quick suggestions for making longer races interesting (i.e. take a camera on a secenic race course and take some pictures). Great idea to get people out for races, but not a good idea for someone who wants to improve their race time. Gallowalking will get you to the finishline, but if you have been training appropriately, it will not drop your race times.

My experiences with Running Times tend to make me think of those people who want to drop a minute from their 5k PR. Whether you are running 21 minute 5k's or running 16 minute 5k's, Running Times will provide runners who are interested in improving their running with the information they need to improve. Pete Pfitzinger in particular brings an incredible wealth of scientific and real-world training and racing knowledge to each issue of the magazine.

I highly recommend Running Times to anyone who is serious ABOUT their running.

2-0 out of 5 stars I prefer Runner's World
As I write this review, there are only two reviews of Running Times right now and I feel like I need to add my two cents. A big reason I subscribed to Running Times was based on these two positive reviews.

I subscribed to Runner's World before I had ever heard of Running Times. I wanted even more motivation to get out there and run distance, so I subscribed to both. Running Times concentrates too much on athlete runners and "destination spots" to run... like Hawaii or the Rocky Mountains, places that have beautiful pictures but are of no interest to me and my running. Furthermore, Running Times concentrates on individual races and results with more detail than I care for. I really don't need a one-page article on the Chicago marathon. I find the occasional article about eating better or training for a better 5k/10k/marathon in Running Times, but those articles are pretty sparse.

I grab an issue of Runner's World and it's the complete opposite. I get information about training, eating, injury prevention, stretching, etc. It has the same kind of race calendar as Running Times for the 5 and 10k's that I want to run. It's information that I can use as a runner. If you'd rather get information about how to improve YOUR running and not stories about running, stick with Runner's World.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great advise and prevention magazine
Running Times is one of two running magazines we subscribe to. It offers some valuable and well tested advise for the novice and well as the seasoned runner, on diet and injury prevention and care after the fact. I recommend it to anyone seriously interested in running.

5-0 out of 5 stars For the serious runner on any level
"Running Times" is for runners who compete either against others, or who simply have a great desire to run well.

Well written, and cleanly organized, you'll read about the training methods of top runners, and the top techniques for meeting a specfic goal.

Marathoners and 5Kers will find that there is a lot to be learned from each other's distance, and they'll have the chance here.

For stats junkies, the people who love to read who won the Juniper Days 5K in Upper Nowhere City... oh, the feast you will have! As a stats junkie myself, I thumb through the times quickly before devouring every detail.

I fully recommend this magazine.
