I have just began to read this book and I can't stop. The sports world is such a mystery and this book helps me understand it. Most books start out with a warm up of hey this is the law and blah,blah,blah...this books says hello want to be a sports agent right in the first chapter. I have to say this book does not intimidate me as a reader it is more of a guide to sports and the law. A must buy if you are even thinking about becoming a sports agent or sports paralegal.
I am a college professor and I have been asked to teach sports law on several occasions to my students. I normally just use a course packet that I put together on my own primarily because other texts are SO costly. This text for the money is the best out there and I will give it a try the next time I teach the course.
I have been looking for a textbook in the area of sports law that is not just a bunch of cases thrown together like a puzzle for the reader to piece them together and figure out what it means. For the price, this book is exactly what I have been looking for for years. Don't get me wrong: other books are good, too, but this one is written so well that I did not want to put it down! I can't say that for many-if any-textbooks. I highly recommend this even for someone who does not take a course in the area. If you enjoy sports and legal issues, you will like this production.
