Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 11 Up—While admitting the difficulty of breaking into the world of professional-sports organizations, this title engages readers with an upbeat tone. The message seems to be that the field includes many individuals who achieve their dreams. No job too small or too large is excluded, from entry-level, minimum-wage maintenance and food-service slots to the-buck-stops-here top management positions. Practical if dry advice on internships, résumés, and education is leavened by interviews with professionals in the field whose enthusiasm is palpable. No matter what sport one is interested in, this book seems to be saying, to get into the business end, all you have to do is believe. The resources section includes a list of trade associations (but no unions), periodicals, websites, and educational institutions.—Georgia Christgau, Middle College High School, Long Island City, NY
