Description

Gough's practical approach asks readers to examine the effects personal character has on performance, teammates, fans, the league, and other individuals and groups in sports. Gough discusses sport's powerful cultural force, its potential for positive impact in the lives and society of those involved in it, and the ethical dimension of games. Gough also addresses the tenuous state of ethics in today's sports culture and the great potential for improvement.
