This Fall I am teaching a course titled, Sport Agency Management for the third consecutive year at the University of Indiana Bloomington. The purpose of the class is to provide students with a greater understanding of the current issues and laws related to the sport agent profession, and focuses primarily on the legal and practical way to act in the capacity of a sport agent and/or operate a sport agency.
For the past three years, I have made one book required reading for those taking the course – Representing the Professional Athlete by Peter A. Carfagna. In my opinion, it is the most powerful, authoritative book available for those interested in learning about the ins-and-outs of the sports agent profession. Thus, I was overcome with excitement when Professor Carfagna informed me that a new, second edition of the book was recently published and is available for Spring 2014 courses.
The description provided by West Academic Publishing states that the Second Edition includes new Agent/Athlete Representation Agreements and new Athlete Licensing and Product Endorsement Agreements.
Professors who would like to review a print copy of the Second Edition may request a complimentary copy. It does not appear that copies are available for purchase at this time.
