Mark Fainaru-Wada co-authored Game of Shadows, the book that ripped the covers off sports' steroid scandal. Now he returns with his Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Steve Fainaru to explore the dangerous links between football and brain injury. As scientific evidence mounts about the potential devastating effects of such injuries, players and loved ones focus on grim statistics that show that the average college player endures 950 blows to the head each season. More than any previous book, the Fainaru's League of Denial exposes the toll that a multi-billion dollar sport takes on young men.
