"The Ampol Book of Australian Sporting Records, started as solely a record book. A few minutes spent digging through its pages will show that it has grown to something far more than that. The aims of every sport have been briefly outlined, and where possible we have listed not only the champions but the tallest, heaviest, youngest, oldest, richest, poorest champions - the things sports fans love to discuss.
The legendary figures in Australian sport, from Don Bradman to Les Darcy, from Boy Charlton to Rod Laver, from Walter Lindrum to Marjorie Jackson have all had their records summarised. If you want to know Victor Trumper's Test average it is here, as are Pharlap's complete record and stake winnings."
