"Fort and Winfree address an interesting issue - the role of collegiate and professional sports in American society and of economic analysis in helping to understand that role ... Recommended." - D. A. Coffin, CHOICE "This is an interesting and very readbale book that will appeal to reality-based sports fans." - Wes Lukowsky, Booklist "As mythbusters, Fort and Winfree had me nodding my head in concurrence, shaking it in disagreement, and smoking over the hotly contested issues that they raise. They consistently deliver thoughtful, insightful, and provocative arguments that make for an entertaining and eye-opening read." - Paul J. Dolan, CEO, Chairman and Owner, Cleveland Indians "15 Sports Myths debunks long-held tenets in the industry, so seemingly pure of heart as to be unassailable. But, they are deceptions. Fort and Winfree take on well-known examples such as drafts, trades, free agent signings, and decisions made by the lords of the leagues in order to get at the truth. This book gives us a sporting chance at knowing the truth. Through the focus of an economics lens, it beams ethics." - Ron MacLean, CBC Sportscaster and Host, Hockey Night in Canada
