Overview


The media has often speculated and sports fans have debated, but until now no one has known the real story. Personal Foul takes an in-depth look at former NBA referee Tim Donaghy and the betting scandal that rocked professional basketball. This is the decisive book that reveals exactly what was done and how it all happened. Which games were affected and how? Did referees target particular players or teams? Just how much did the NBA know and when? How did the mafia get involved? The book answers all of these questions and more. Thrilling and poignant, Personal Foul takes readers on the journey of one man wrestling his own demons and shines a light on a culture of gambling and "directive" officiating in the NBA that promises to change the way sports fans view the game forever. The book also includes a foreword by Phil Scala, the FBI Special Agent who worked the Gambino case.

This book should be read by every young adult. This will show the power of choices, I tip my hat to Donaghy for admitting his poor choices and trying to do the right thing. This guy has been through hell, the NBA, his ex wife and the media tried to bury him but he is still standing. I wish him the best of luck with his second chance in life, he paid his price.

This book shows how quickly we can lose the important things in our lives due to poor choices and our disregard for basic ethics and morality. The NBA breeds corruption in its players, coaches and referees.

I learned how devasting gambling addiction can be. It revealed many facts about the favortism in the NBA that I always suspected. I enjoyed the whole book and could not stop reading it.
