Product Details


"A book honoring women athletes has finally arrived. Jane Gottesman’s Game Face, in gymnastics terms, is a perfect ’10.’ The photographs are riveting and the text dramatic and informative—a timely tribute to a major part of the sports scene that has too long been ignored."
—Bud Greenspan, sports historian and Olympics film producer

"Whether you’re from the generation of drum majorettes or Title IX, the athletes of Game Face will inspire you. For women to become strong is a deep part of the revolution."
—Gloria Steinem

"These images are striking, distinctive, and evocative. Over the past generation, many of us have arrived at a better understanding of what athletic participation can mean to girls and women. Game Face heightens that understanding."
—Bob Costas

"A powerful image seizes a moment in time and yet tells a story of a lifetime. There is no better proof of this then Jane Gottesman’s Game Face. Game Face captures the essence of being a female athlete. And it also does much more. It shows that sport unites us all because it belongs to us all."
—Anita L. DeFrantz, International Olympic Committee First Vice President

"Game Face is a first. Together these photographs give a face to the critical mass of people who have made women’s sports part of the popular landscape."
—Billie Jean King

"Game Face is a tribute to the beauty of competition, to the dedication, skill and enthusiasm female athletes are finally encouraged to display. Every one of these women is a winner and so is each of the photographs."
—Dick Schaap, ABC Sports

"Inspiring! Game Face is proof that a picture is worth a thousand words. This book looks at women’s sports from a refreshing perspective. Talk about feeling empowered—I’ve got my Game Face on!"
—Robin Roberts, ESPN anchor
