    Review quote
    "Journalistically bruising." "-- Peter King ""It is meticulously researched, artfully structured, engaging and well written... this is an informative, intriguing and sobering book about power and control. I recommend it strongly." - Nate Jackson, "The Washington Post " "Mark Fainaru-Wada and Steve Fainaru's book 'League of Denial' should be required reading in secondary schools for all athletes. Those of us outside the lines will be wiser, as well, for having invested just a few hours to read it."" - Tim Cowlishaw, Dallas Morning News ""Meticulously documented and endlessly chilling." - "The New York Times ""'League of Denial' may turn out to be the most influential sports-related book of our time."" -The Boston Globe, Best Sports Books of 2013"
