What is happening to our brains when we watch an exhilarating match? Why are fans so loyal to their team? Journalist Eric Simons explores the psychology behind the love of the game. Attending neuroscience conferences, talking to psychologists, scientists and fans, He sets out to discover what it is that makes sport so strangely compelling. Exploring the psychology and social role of sport, The Secret Lives of Sports Fans will appeal to readers of Kate Fox, and anyone who finds themselves addicted to sporting spectacle or the ups and downs of their team.
