It’s been a good few months, and with it, a lot of books.
The big name titles have been published, and there’s a handful of smaller titles that have been out there.
This week, the book publishing industry is back on track.
It’s time for a new era in sports books.
We’re looking at the biggest names in the industry.
How can we make this a more vibrant market?
How can publishers thrive in the face of a rapidly changing digital environment?
How do they build their sales and reach to their customers while staying true to the original spirit of the book?

Schoenfeld, The New Sports Book: The Story of Baseball in the 21st Century; Mark Niebur, The Book of the New Sports: A History of Sports and Popular Culture; and Scott Kacsmar, The Ultimate Guide to Sports: The Definitive Guide to All Things Sports.
