A word of advice from Editor Anne McKinney: "If you want to enter the sports field or advance in the industry, you don't need just any resume book. You need an industry-specific resume book! You will love this book targeted specifically to the sports field. Every resume and cover letter we put in a Real-Resumes Series book has been tested and proven in the real job market. Don't play games with your career. Your choice of a resume book is one of the most important career decisions you will ever make."
