The Ultimate Anthropologist

With tongue firmly in cheek, ultimate-frisbee player and writer Tony Leonardo explains his sport to the masses.

Michael S. Gerber

Tony Leonardo has played ultimate—what some people simply call "frisbee"—for more than two decades. He calls it one of the "world's most secret and clandestine sports." In his first book, Ultimate: The First Four Decades, he and co-author Adam Zagoria told the history of the sport that has become increasingly popular in high schools, colleges, and local parks across the United States and the rest of the world. In his most recent book, Ultimate: The Greatest Sport Ever Invented by Man, Leonardo described some of the seedier and more ridiculous sides of the game—tales he had to leave out of the first book, but just couldn't keep to himself.
