Review Of Higher EducationFor college basketball fans who list Goodfellas among their favorite movies and occasionally keep an eye on point spreads, David Porter's Fixed: How Goodfellas Bought Boston College Basketball could not be more in you wheelhouse.
The brilliance of Fixed is in the incredible detail Porter uses in depicting how the scheme began, how players were drawn in and, most importantly, how they were affected emotionally and psychologically.
Most interesting is Porter's exploration of our country's romanticized notion of sports, and how misdeeds on fields of play are often treated more harshly than off them.
