High Praise for The Fix Is In

"With The Fix Is In, Tuohy makes a compelling, fact-based argument that not everything in the sports world is as it seems - that behind the visceral thrills and feel-good hype lies a potentially dark underworld of profit motives, conflicting interests and possibly rigged competitions, in which nothing occurs by happy accident" - Patrick Hruby, ESPN.com's Page 2

"Tuohy argues his case forcefully...Even if there are no shades of gray in [his] perspective, he certainly finds enough blackness in misconduct and even Mob-controlled criminality...the smoke is so thick that the fires must be numerous and spread across the entire playing field of professional sports." - Dave Luhrssen, Milwaukee's The Shepherd Express.  Read his complete review here.

"Tuohy does make...sensible points about sports as an entertainment business, eager to maximize profits at whatever cost." - Mark Yost, The Wall Street Journal.  Read his complete review here.

"Brian Tuohy pens a book that is must read material for anyone who has a passion for the games, the players, the issues and items, of the high stakes world of professional and collegiate sports. This book is riveting, and it makes a person seriously contemplate what is real versus what might be choreographed. After reading The Fix Is In, I came away thinking that the rabbit hole within the sporting world might be far deeper than I had ever previously imagined." - Dino Costa, host of The Dino Costa Show on Mad Dog Sports Radio SiriusXM

"This book is a clear eye-opener. Author Brian Tuohy peels back the Astroturf to show readers how pro sports have manipulated and hooked fans...'The Fix Is In' shouldn't be missed." - Terri Schlichenmeyer, The Bookworm Sez.  Read her entire review here.
