I actually was in the office of a sports executive that I deeply admire yesterday and he had The GM sitting out on a coffee table and for that reason, I ordered it on Amazon today! But I’m happy to hear you also got a lot out of it too.

For those of us interested in Sports PR, we obviously aren’t going to be making personnel decisions but it is important to understand the pressures GMs face as well as why they make some of their decisions so we can do a better job on our end.

Absolutely. While “The GM” is based around Ernie Accorsi and his role with the Giants, there is a lot of great information about the details of running a professional sports team that can apply across many different job functions. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the book!
