For the first time, Rosenhaus reveals the brash style that he wields on behalf of more than fifty clients - including such stars as Warren Sapp, Brian Blades, and Eric Green, all of whom benefited from a cool $200 million worth of deals in the past two years alone. And while other agents and NFL executives may throw penalty flags at his aggressive tactics and his power to shift the balance of talent in the league, players love him. They've heard the Rosenhaus philosophy, and they've seen the money. A funny and thrilling behind-the-scenes look at the hard cash, big egos, and extreme partying that make the NFL a multibillion-dollar spectacle, A Shark Never Sleeps jolts football into the next millennium. In a sport that prides itself on intimidation, Drew Rosenhaus is a new kind of power player - one determined to keep feasting until the very last bite.
