Front Cover
Crooked Island Pub Incorporated, 2004 - Sports & Recreation - 224 pages
Nothing stirs the inner spirit like sports. It transcends every aspect of our lives. The allure of professional sports has reached an all-time high globally. The average professional ballplayer makes more money in one year than most people will earn in three lifetimes. It's no wonder there is an increase in kids abandoning their schoolwork to spend extra time developing their athletic talents. Going pro is an insightful and thought-provoking book regarding the truth about student-athletes, education, and the commercialism of sports. -- Publisher description
