Review: Do you know much about sports? Do you know about how athletes are paid? Do you wish to learn more about these topics? If so then Money in Sports by Nick Hunter is the book for you. Did you know that Tiger Woods makes the most money? I didn't. In this book you will learn all this and more. Money in Sports examines how money has become tied to sports, and the implications this has for both athletes and fans.

The type of nonfiction that this book presents is expository. Therefore the reason for writing is to inform the reader about money in sports. The main idea of Money in Sports is athletes and everyone connected to sports get paid and pays people a significant amount of money. "Some people take shortcuts to make money out of sports by bending and breaking the rules." That means that they lose a game just to make money rather than love of the game and just play. When managers of teams need young recruits it's all about making money because if they get exceptional players, then they might win the championship and get more money.

Money in Sports is an amazing book that could help people learn all about sports and the money of sports. This is a perfect book for schools to purchase because it is a high-interest topic. It is perfect if you are learning about money, it would be interesting to learn about how athletes and sports people are paid. Overall, Money in Sports presents amazing nonfiction text that that could help plenty of students learn about money.
