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.
