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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
