Book Recommendation: Money Players

I recently enjoyed reading Marc Isenberg's Money Players: A Pro Athlete's Guide to Success in Sports, Business & Life. I enthusiastically recommend it to any sports fan, but particularly any player, team executive, agent, or prospective agent.

Over the course of 23 chapters, Money Players thoughtfully details every imaginable business aspect of becoming and being a professional athlete--from selecting an agent to maximizing media relations to understanding the duties and rights of being a member of a players' union--and does so in very clear and precise ways. In chapter 7, for instance, Marc offers a particularly terrific description of how the player drafts work, comparing the rules, as well as the risks and benefits of the major leagues' drafts.

I suspect I'll be regualrly using Money Players as a resource. It certainly delves into sports law issues and does so with both sophistication and clarity. If you would like to learn more about Money Players, check out these excerprts, Darren Heitner's interview of Marc on Sports Agent Blog, and Marc's blog, Money Players.

It really should be the guide book for every professional athlete out there.
