GAIN A COMPETITIVE EDGE!

 

This is the first real-world guide to building and using analytical models for measuring and assessing performance in the five major sports: football, basketball, baseball, soccer, and tennis.

This book will provide you with the tools for cutting-edge approaches you can extend to the sport of your choice.

You’ll learn how to leverage a deep understanding of each sport’s principles, rules, attributes, measures, and performance outcomes.
