The whole thing is one long in-joke for those in the ultimate community. Jul 23, James rated it it was ok. There is a fundamental problem here. I think anyone would agree that this book borders on nonsense to a non-ultimate player. Still, this is not necessarily a problem, as there is a fine tradition of niche writing.
However, if you are an ultimate player, then you've heard all of this shit before and you're sick of it. Well, I am anyway. The writing is smarmy college-writing, intended to be witty and ironic. If you ever want to know what it's like to stand on the sidelines at an Ultimate tournamen There is a fundamental problem here. If you ever want to know what it's like to stand on the sidelines at an Ultimate tournament talking to an incredibly self-interested ultimate player, then read this book. View 1 comment. Dec 15, Jay rated it it was amazing Shelves: , nonfiction. Pretty much the greatest book ever written on Ultimate, including truth and entertainment and so much more.
If you want a good feel for Ultimate Frisbee and its adherents, read this book. If you already play, this book is double dogged for you for sure. Counter-culture sport, go! Feb 24, dusty. This book is very fun in small doses over a long period of time. Mar 02, Stacey rated it really liked it. Very funny book!! A good read if you're an Ultimate player.
Jul 15, Stacey rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , funny , sport. Hilarious and informative- every aspiring or seasoned ultimate player should read this little guide to the greatest sport ever invented by man. Sep 13, Rachel Jackson rated it really liked it. I bought Ultimate: The Greatest Sport Ever Invented By Man for a friend who is quite the Ultimate Frisbee aficionado, hoping that, as an amateur player himself, he would be able to find some humor in this book beyond the basic rules and concepts of the game.
Through him, I am also inundated with Ultimate terms and stories, and although I don't play the sport myself, I was not disappointed by Pasquale Anthony Leonardo's snarky and vibrant take on Ultimate Frisbee. A nice balance between basic rules I bought Ultimate: The Greatest Sport Ever Invented By Man for a friend who is quite the Ultimate Frisbee aficionado, hoping that, as an amateur player himself, he would be able to find some humor in this book beyond the basic rules and concepts of the game. A nice balance between basic rules and codes of the game for potential newbies and esoteric inside jokes or cultural notes for long-time players, the book was a quick and entertaining read that I felt was perfect for the Ultimate player who is very well inundated with Ultimate culture.

Sometimes I felt the official rules or guidelines for the sport were a bit much, and I preferred the more humorous sections of the book, but overall it was a good mix of both without either side seeming forced. Dec 21, Danny rated it it was amazing Shelves: ultimate-frisbee. Ultimate the Greatest Sport Ever Invented by Man written by Pasquale Anthony Leonardo with art by Cade Beaulieu presents the many aspects of our sport — its athleticism, inclusiveness, sense of community, base silliness, notorious soirees and, most importantly, its spirit.
Fact and fiction blend together to offer innumerable inside jokes. This is an excerpt from my full review on my blog, High Release Handler. Dec 09, Dave rated it liked it.pierreducalvet.ca/85461.php
Urban Dictionary: Ultimate Frisbee
I am amazed that so much of the Ultimate experience is so common. I don't know what a non-Ultimate player would get out of this, maybe a glimpse into the world of an Ultimate player. For the player it's well worth taking 90 minutes to dip into the wacky world of Ultimate to stir up fond and even a few not so fond memories.
The author does a nice job of mixing the serious with the ridiculous aspects of Ultimate. The Train isn't all there is to Dartmouth Ultimate. We've got a great B-team, the Discomfort Trolley affectionately known as Disco Troll , that can be either a developmental opportunity or a more relaxed alternative to the commitment required to the Train.
If you want to continue developing and playing without the Train's commitment level, check out the Trolley. We'd love to meet you, have you come play at a practice, hang out, and show you around Hanover. We probably can even have a bed for you to crash on when you come.
Blitz email one or all of our captains and we can figure something out. Come join us at a practice! In the fall and spring, practices are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from pm. We practice at Sachem fields a mile down Main St. Some players choose to run out there, but if you want a ride, meet in front of Dartmouth Hall at We'll bring the cars. In the winter it gets a bit more snowy and a bit more complicated. The Train generally practices and does workouts four or five days a week, and the Trolley a bit less.
The times are variable, so it's best to email los capitanes and ask them when we're practicing. Get Involved Parents, alumni, friends We encourage you to keep up to speed with Dartmouth Ultimate by viewing the Media page for recent photos and videos, the Roster page to see current players, the Schedule page to see our upcoming tournaments and past results, and the Newsletter page to read about what we have been up to and all the hard work we're putting in.
Prospective Players What's ultimate? Isn't it only for dirty hippies? What's the deal with the Pain Train? I've never played ultimate before, all I can do is a "backyard backhand," and I don't even know what that means. Can I still play with you guys?
I guess I can't be a part of Dartmouth Ultimate. I'm a prospie who's thinking of coming to Dartmouth and would love to come to a practice and hang out with the team. Can I do that?
