How To Become A NFL Sports Agent: Step-By-Step Instructions by John Hernandez
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Not a bad book, but I'm only giving in 3 stars because it's far too short, far too general, lacks way too much detail, really barely covers anything significant. But the author could have put more time and effort into it and made it into a much better book, because like I said, it's not bad -- it's just incomplete. I did learn a few important details, so it was worth the investment, and it gives some advice on resources, but could have acted more like a significant resource of its own, if the author had chosen to do so. Lately, I've been approached by both players and coaches about both representation and advising them on their careers, but I'm not a sports agent, and not sure I would ever want to be. But I wanted guidance in how to more properly guide these people in their searches for new opportunities. This book gave me a few facts that were important to know, but really, it's just an intro, almost just an outline, and a much more comprehensive book should be required if researching this field. But you get what you pay for, and it was short and cheap, and therefore I did not have high expectations, so I was not terribly disappointed. It's a nice intro, and I'd encourage the author to write a second edition and significantly expand it to become the resource it could be. Barely recommended to a niche audience....
