The Tools for Analysis and Action Learning questions provide a great basis for students to employ higher-level thinking strategies to the diverse array of incredibly interesting ‘real life’ Sport Cases presented in each chapter.  
This exciting new book is rich in theory and stimulates readers to really think through the associated implications for sport management practice.
