Less than Comprehensive Perspective,
This review is from: Field of Schemes: How the Great Stadium Swindle Turns Public Money into Private Profit (Hardcover)
The book is a must-read for any community considering investing in a private, for-profit sports facility. Nevertheless, it provides a less than comprehensive perspective. I would recommend reading the book along with Minor League Baseball and Local Economic Development for a wider view of what communities might encounter when making this major, and occassionally unnecessary, investment.
