"The book is organized into three areas, each serving as key focus area in both introductory sport-management courses and more advanced classes with a global focus. The structure of this book allows for easy integration into courses, whereas faculty can develop a syllabus with similar organization or merge it into an already established class ... The topics are timely and offer many opportunities for class discussion, small-group work, and student self-reflection." - Annemarie Farrell, Ithaca College, International Journal of Sport Communication
