1.0 out of 5 stars Dry and boring June 7, 2007
Unless you're looking to get into the administrative parts of the sports industry, safe yourself the time to read this book...I read it because it was in my curriculum....If you do decide to read it, it is an easy read without the need of memorizations, complex formulas or ideas

3.0 out of 5 stars OK July 15, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was the main course work for my undergraduate class in health administration. Very dry and boring, common sense material. An easy read with chapter reviews and questions.

5.0 out of 5 stars *Warning* Do not buy this book from Seller Penntext. March 29, 2011
I bought 2 of these books from Seller Penntext and 3 days later they canceled the order saying they were out of stock. The same day the books were re-listed for more money. Buyer Beware do not buy from Seller Penntext.
