My Interest in Books and Law Review Articles
Greg and I were tagged by Skip over at The Sports Economist with several questions about our interest in books. I've modified some of the questions/answers to include law review articles.
1. How many books do you own?
At least 50 sports books, and several hundred other types of books (and, for some, their CliffsNotes too!). To be honest, most of my reading is now comprised of reading law review articles, typically pertaining to sports law, food and drug law, or behavioral law and economics. Some of my favorite legal scholars include (and in no particular order): Paul Weiler, Kim Forde-Mazrui, Kip Viscusi, Barry Cushman, John Norton Moore, Jon Hanson, Richard Merrill, Peter Barton Hutt, Daniel Halperin, and Morton Horwitz. I also find myself increasingly interested in government and economic studies, as well as recent judicial opinions. Pretty exciting life indeed.2. Most recent purchase or download?
I. Armen Keteyian, Money Players Inside the New NBA (1998). I just picked this up. It is supposed to be an outstanding and objective account of what really goes on in the NBA, including discussion of what actually gave rise to Michael Jordan's sojourn into baseball, circa 1994. I'm looking forward to reading this book.3a. Five (or six) books or law review articles that "meant the most":
4. Who gets next?
Bruce Allen at Boston Sports Media Watch, Professor Christine Corcos at the Media Law Prof Blog, Darren Rovell at his ESPN blog, William Li at To Fuss is Human, to Rant is Divine, and Ralph Hickock at Hickock Sports.
