“The Savvy Guide To Series is designed to help you get to the next level, regardless of the topic,” notes Richard White, Chief Operating Officer at Sams Technical Publishing. “These books are like having a good friend by your side — one who has already tackled the subject at hand.”

The Savvy Guide to Fantasy Sports is a comprehensive guide to this growing Internet-based activity. Written by Mike Harmon, Yahoo! Sports Columnist and long-time fantasy sports participant, the book will help players young and old, novice or experienced. This book includes a dedicated web-page that will contain timely information regarding each season’s sport updated by the author.

Harmon parlays his years of experience both playing fantasy sports and answering players’ questions into a very useful guide to playing fantasy sports, regardless of the sport. Unlike other books that focus on a particular sport, The Savvy Guide To Fantasy Sports provides guidance on all the major sports: football, baseball, basketball, auto racing — and dives into the lesser played unique fantasy sport leagues such as cricket, soccer and reality TV shows.

“For the most part, the general mechanics of the games are the same,” says Harmon. “However, the availability of numerous league configuration options adds to the complexity of the competition, and offers both enjoyment and challenges to every level of fan. There are different types of leagues, and those general rules, strategies and player habits transcend the sports. This book will benefit anyone playing in a fantasy sport league.”

Author Michael “Mike” Harmon is a columnist for Yahoo! Sports and has contributed content to several Fantasy-related websites, such as MLB.com. Harmon worked directly for Yahoo! Sports from 1999-2004, helping to develop many fantasy sports games, including Yahoo! Sports’ Fantasy Football games. He is a member of the Fantasy Sports Trade Association, a board member of the Fantasy Sports Writer’s Association and is a frequent guest on radio programs across the country. His weekly columns on Yahoo! Sports have covered football, baseball, basketball, hockey, NASCAR(R), and golf. Harmon now writes exclusively for Yahoo! Sports and offers predictions, advice, and feedback to fantasy sports players.
