Professional sports in America: it’s all about fair play and the goal of winning championships. At least that’s the spin. But could it be a massive showbiz operation filled with greedy owners, crooked referees, and coddled players, all with the unstated goal of grabbing as much money as possible?Author Brian Tuohy provides a full-sourced saga of the corruption that has infected the storied histories of the NBA, MLB, NFL, NHL, and NASCAR.With reality obscured by a complacent and often complicit sports media, The Fix Is In shines a light on a hidden history of clandestine arrangements between television networks and sports leagues, all against a background of drinking, drugging, and crime.Finally, here’s a book that unflinchingly examines the sordid underbelly of the American sports industry.Brian Tuohy maintains the website thefixisin.net and is a frequent contributor to the CBS Sports website bleacherreport.com, where he...

This book was very interesting and enjoyable to read. I checked this book out when I was in the process of writing my speech on media manipulation. It provided me with an abundance of useful information, and I didn't feel bored or uninterested while reading through the chapters. This book goes into detail of how the media manipulates the situations of famous and popular sports players around the world. It gave me information as to how the media hides the fixed life of sports, the gambling, as well as doping. It was a different book compared to what I usually check out from the Hamilton Public Library and read. I would encourage people to read this book if they are prepared to read and discover how the media and so many people around us continue to take advantage of us, in order to make money etc. Once again, this book provided me with a lot of useful information, and when I watch sports, I always think and relate back to this book! I would rate it a 4/5.
