    In 1919, American headlines proclaimed the fix and cover-up of the World Series as "the most gigantic sporting swindle in the history of America." In this painstaking review, Eliot Asinof has reconstructed the entire scene-by-scene story of the scandal, in which eight Chicago White Sox players arranged with the nation’s leading gamblers to throw the series to Cincinnati. Asinof vividly describes the tense meetings, the hitches in the conniving, the actual plays in which the Series was thrown, the Grand Jury indictment, and the famous 1921 trial.

  • The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition)

    Story

    By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could. From the binge that sank a 170-foot motor yacht, crashed a Gulfstream jet, and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids who waited at home and the fast-talking, hard-partying young stockbrokers who called him king, here, in Jordan Belfort's own words, is the story of the ill-fated genius they called the Wolf of Wall Street.

    Would you try another book from Jordan Belfort and/or Eric Meyers?

    No way


    What could Jordan Belfort have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Gone to jail for life and be denied a pencil and paper to avoid me wasting money on this garbage


    What didn’t you like about Eric Meyers’s performance?

    He was fine....the story was just poor


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger! Why did I waste a credit on this blowhard!


    Any additional comments?

    Too bad cocaine and heroin took John Belush and not this goof.
