From the Publisher"Money Games presents a compelling perspective on the evolution of sports business and provides an excellent roadmap to maximizing the benefits and minimizing the pitfalls that arise at the intersection of sports and entertainment."—David Stern, NBA Commissioner
As Major League Baseball has achieved record business performance in recent years, the line that separates sports from entertainment continues to diminish. Money Games examines the current business climate in the sports industry and identifies the challenges facing the various sports leagues in delivering fans what they want while keeping up with the different ways in which fans consume the games."—Allan H. (Bud) Selig, Baseball Commissioner
"Fans, sports and media executives, and even investors will find that Carter's examination, exploration, and explanation of the changing landscape of sports and entertainment helps them understand their own experiences. From mobile technology and video games to athlete branding and corporate meetings, he interprets everyday events—at home, away from home, and at-venue."
—Stephen A. Greyser, Harvard Business School

The strategies and tactics that all the players will want—from the boardroom to the locker room—can be found in Money Games."
