Born 2 BALL: So You Want To Be A Professional Athlete? Reviews
This book is a must read. It goes deeper than anything I have ever seen when it comes to the economics behind sports. It brings up not only why many athletes fall into financial trouble shortly after retiring, but the steps to correct the problem. Adefope highlights the responsibilities of not only the athlete, but the athlete's agents, academic institutions, families and even the sports leagues themselves in preventing athletes' financial ruin. This book is a must have for any athlete or relative of an athlete. If you want someone to succeed as much off the court as he or she does on the court, you must have this book.
Completely agree with the other reviewers. This book is a must-read. It breaks down the game (pun-intended) expertly. The author explains the pitfalls so many athletes fall into, but he also details how to avoid them. In addition, he also goes in depth about the other aspects of professional sports - agents, families, the leagues, etc. I can't recommend this book enough. If you're an athlete, related to one, a fan of sports, or even just want to learn, get this book.
This book was well written, and broken down nicely. It was easy to understand and gave me a lot of knowledge on the sports industry. I will keep going back to this book for help on questions I have. I think this book would not only help athletes like me but anyone who just wants to learn more about professional sports. Great book!
