MEDIA REVIEWS
"I applaud Boyle's book as an attempt to study an important field of journalism that is too often ignored or note taken seriously. News organizations devote massive resources to sports coverage and even the most erudite people often are avid followers of at least one sport. Sports journalism deserves and requires serious analysis such as this book provides."

-COMMUNICATION RESEARCH TRENDS -- Eileen Wirth
"One of the major strengths of the book is that Boyle interviewed widely within the industry and thus his narrative offers a diverse range of understanding and analysis of sports journalism."
