"If there is any justice, Sidelined will become a
cornerstone text for everyone who works in-or cares about-sports
media. The level of insight that Julie DiCaro provides holds the
key for making us more open-minded and empathetic about the sexism
that pervades the industry. It is also written with a snappy flair
that reads like the best sports writing."
