"Eureka! A long overdue sports management publication which covers a wide range of issues and resists filling its pages with case studies from American sports that have little or no bearing outside the US." " "An impressive group of academics have produced one of the best sports management books so far. The book goes into great detail in a number of areas and is interspersed with humour to make otherwise dull subjects more entertaining. Readers are also challenged to give their interpretation of events." "Reviewer: Peter Miller, Soccer Consultant Read what the experts have said about this book at: http://www.im-reports.com/SM/IJSM/?type=current in the July edition of the International Journal of Sport Marketing and Sponsorship (Volumbe 6 number 1)
