'Stefan Késenne is one of the most innovative, clear-headed sports economists writing today. With this book, he has provided a thoughtful, accessible exegesis of the extant literature on the economic theory of team sports leagues. There is no book like this currently available. It will serve as an excellent text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in sports economics. I heartily recommend it.'
