How Following Sports Benefits Life

by | Mar 31, 2021 | Latest Books by Alums

In his latest book, FANS: How Watching Sports Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Understanding (Algonquin Press 2021), Larry Olmsted ’84 examines the lives of those who are passionate about sports. He makes the case that the more you identify with a sports team, the better your social, psychological, and physical health, the more meaningful your relationships, and the better connected and happier you are. Olmsted draws upon interviews and brand new research to present why being a fan is good for us both as individuals and as a society.
