    Interesting Story on College Sports and Academics

    I thought the subject matter and plot were very compelling. A very short read that makes you ponder over what really happens at our academic institutions. However, the writing feels a little rushed, especially at the beginning, and it is a bit predictable, but is an enjoyable book that is hard to put down once you get into it. The best part - IT Is FREE. So, if sports and academics interest you, I highly recommend this book.
