While fans continue to debate the relative merits of their favorite drivers, ESPN.com's premier motor sports writer Terry Blount now brings some needed clarity and perspective to America's biggest spectator sport, rating drivers, teams, cars, and tracks, and "bluntly" lets readers know which are overrated and which are underrated in a new book that's bound to further the debate and stir up more controversy. It's an all-fun but in-depth look at the opinionated discussions fans have in their living rooms every weekend: "That guy isn't as good as people think", or, "That driver is way better than where he finished." Did the reputation match the results? Was the performance better than the perception? And how much of a factor was the car? Evaluating driver skills is a whopping task, even for the most knowledgeable folks in the sport. But Blount is one of the most qualified analysts, and well up to the task of trying to separate fact from fiction, reputation from reality, and equipment from talent. Along with rating drivers, The Blount Report also rates a vast array of the NASCAR world from speedways to races and rules to records. It's all up for debate. So fasten your seatbelt and enjoy...it may get a bit bumpy along the way but it's well worth the ride.

On football weekends in the United States, thousands of fans gather in the parking lots outside of stadiums, where they park their trucks, let down the gates, and begin a pregame ritual of drinking and grilling. Tailgating, which began in the early 1900s as a quaint picnic lunch outside of the stadium, has evolved into a massive public social event with complex menus, extravagant creative fare, and state-of-art grilling equipment. Unlike traditional notions of the home kitchen, the blacktop is a highly masculine culinary environment in which men and the food they cook are often the star attractions. Gridiron Gourmet examines tailgating as shown in television, film, advertising, and cookbooks, and takes a close look at the experiences of those tailgaters who are as serious about their brisket as they are about cheering on their favorite team, demonstrating how and why the gendered performances on the football field are often matched by the intensity of the masculine displays in front of grills, smokers, and deep fryers.

For more than two thousand years Christian expansion and proselytizing was couched in terms of 'defending the faith'. Until recently in the United States, much of that defense came in the form of reactions against the 'liberal' influences channeled through big-corporate media such as popular music, Hollywood movies, and network and cable television. But the election of Ronald Reagan as a Hollywood President introduced Christian America to the tools of advertising and multimedia appeals to children and youth to win new believers to God's armies. Christotainment examines how Christian fundamentalism has realigned its armies to combat threats against it by employing the forces it once considered its chief enemies: the entertainment media, including movies, television, music, cartoons, theme parks, video games, and books. Invited contributors discuss the critical theoretical frameworks of top-selling devices within Christian pop culture and the appeal to masses of American souls through the blessed marriage of corporatism and the quest for pleasure.

This four-volume set introduces, on the management side, principles and procedures of economics, budgeting and finance; leadership; governance; communication; business law and ethics; and human resources practices; all in the sports context. On the marketing side this reference resource explores two broad streams: marketing of sport and of sport-related products (promoting a particular team or selling team- and sport-related merchandise, for example), and using sports as a platform for marketing non-sports products, such as celebrity endorsements of a particular brand of watch or the corporate sponsorship of a tennis tournament. Together, these four volumes offer a comprehensive and authoritative overview of the state of sports management and marketing today, providing an invaluable print or online resource for student researchers.
