Professional reviews

"Anyone who follows sports knows money is at the crux of, well, everything. What Matthew Futterman details, and what George Newbern clearly describes, is the genesis of how money took root in the games we love. Newburn's storytelling abilities help give an identity to the real-life characters in many athletic, marketing, and contractual endeavors. Futterman's narrative is fascinating; it's not bogged down in too many statistics. Newbern's narration fits the story well--with the right amount of intonation, surprise, and inflection. Chapters include a variety of topics: Catfish Hunter's battle over an annuity in baseball, the founding of a sports academy, and the biography of vanguard agent Mark McCormack are three of the best ones, with Newbern keeping perfect pace.
