From Publishers Weekly

Feb 10, 2014 – “For a select few, becoming a superstar athlete... is a dream come true. However, that isn’t the only way to carve out a career in sports.” In this fourth title in the Be What You Want series (following books about working as a chef, writer, or comic-book artist), nonfiction author Mattern shows readers several potential career paths in athletics, including coach, scout, agent, journalist, and more (even health club manager). Mattern gives a concise breakdown of each potential job, and Q&A-style profiles with those in the biz offer real-world perspectives (albeit somewhat limited ones—several interviewees are all from the same New York City high school). Still, it’s a decent starting point for kids thinking about converting a passion for sports into a career. Ages 8–12.
