    "The Dream Job" is the bible for sports marketing

    I used this book for my sports marketing class at college, and the only thing better than the textbook was the professor, who was also the book's author. You can't get a job in sports publicity, promotion or marketing without knowing the industry from top to bottom. This book takes you carefully along that long, rich road.
