What the Critics Are Saying

"As fascinating as it is illuminating."

“His (Christian Dawkins) misadventures turn out to be as much of a nail biter as any March Madness contest.”

“A dutiful retelling of Dawkins’ experiences and isn’t shy about extending blame to a nationwide network of covert player payments.”

“Leaves nothing to the imagination. All the 'whys' are answered, and the major players are exposed, especially government and law enforcement officials.“
