Editorial Reviews

Review

“Meticulously documented and endlessly chilling.”The New York Times

“The book should come with a warning label for football fans: Watching a game will never be the same after you read it. . . . [Fainaru-Wada and Fainaru] ask tough questions of the NFL without taking their conclu- sions too far.”
—NPR

“Engaging and well written . . . an informative, intriguing and sobering book about power and control. I recommend it strongly.”—Nate Jackson, The Washington Post

“Journalistically bruising.”
—Peter King

“Clear-eyed and devastating.”San Francisco Chronicle

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, The Dallas Morning News
