"Covering professional and NCAA team and individual sports, this set provides timely overviews of major sports industry issues together with empirical applications ranging from attendance to ZIP code analysis. No sports economist will want to be without this resource; all can enjoy and benefit from lucid, insightful applications of the "dismal science" to areas that are anything but dismal. Highly recommended." --Choice
