League of Fans sports policy director, Ken Reed, has a new book out. It’s titled, The Sports Reformers: Working to Make the World of Sports a Better Place. It is Reed’s fifth book.
Here’s a short description of the book:
Sports, at their best, matter. They can positively impact society and a large number of stakeholders. However, the world of sports is plagued by a number of problems today, most of them ego-and-greed-driven.
Nevertheless, there are many sports reformers – current and former athletes, doctors, lawyers, politicians, consumer watchdogs, former athletic administrators, research scientists, civil rights activists, journalists, professors, fans and parents — who are working to enhance the positives and mitigate the negatives in sports.
This book is a collection of short interviews with some of those individuals.
Their work makes them true sports heroes.
