Overview

After nearly eight years in prison, sports superagent Tank Black tells his story for the first time in his memoir entitled TANKED! It's the true tale of his inspiring rise and the mistakes and failings that caused his crash, conviction, and imprisonment. Tank tells the stories behind the stories of some of football's most famous and notorious players, revealing for the first time details involving murder, arson, pregnant girlfriends, greedy and manipulative parents, and the brazen corruption of the NFL Players Association and college sports. Tank also details his own mistakes and explains the pressure involved in getting to and staying on the top of the agent profession. He chronicles his experiences with players in strip clubs and how easy it is to get caught up in the fast lane. This is an expose of the seamy underbelly of professional sports as told by its most infamous superagent.

He signed rising NBA star Vince Carter when he had no NBA clients, and represented more than one hundred top NFL draft choices. He has been featured in Time magazine and the Wall Street Journal, and has been a guest on America's Most Wanted and HBO's Real Sports. He was ultimately cleared of all fraud charges in a civil suit brought by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
