Good book. Delivery was good.

I have lived close to Norte Dame the majority of my life. I have followed ND all of my life. So in the spirit of openness I tell you that, to guide you in my review.
I found the book to be crass, vindictive and well below what you would expect for professional sports writers. As other reviewers have pointed out, the majority of the books 'interviews' came from a few selected voices. Players who had been kicked off the team, kicked out of the school or just simply malcontents. It was death by hearsay. I am not going to say that lou is pure as the driven snow. I remeber well is grabbing of a plyers facemask during a game (after the player had committed a stupid personal foul), both my wife and I were surprised at lou's intense reaction. But the player also didn't committment another foul of the same nature. Much of the first part of the book is about lou's supposed intense and 'demeaning' behavior towards the players. That might be true, it might also be the fact that when you go to a divison 1 NCAA program with the pressure of a huge alumni base and the eyes of NFL scouts watching your every play that things might be a little different than if you are playing divison III ball at Manchester College. Turman said it best, "If can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen". IF YOU HATE NOTRE DAME YOU WILL LOVE THIS BOOK. IF YOU NOTRE DAME THE BOOK WILL TROUBLE YOU

Seller was great, I was just disappointed with the content of the book. I just wanted to see what the haters were saying about the Irish though.

When you read this book you realize a coach will put winning over anything else. He ruined kids love of the game of football and any future they had in it. I will turn ESPN when Holtz is on there speaking. Coaches like him and in General need to stay away from the game.

I felt the authors did a decent job exposing the realities of College Football and the scandalous things athletic programs will do for victory. Those scandalous things include looking the other way on steroids and player misbehavior, downgrading injuries, and academic malfeasance. The authors picked on Notre Dame and then-Coach Lou Holtz, but could have written this book about USC, Colorado, Michigan, Florida State, or other big-time progams. Despite the scandalous activities alleged in these pages, Notre Dame probably has one of the cleaner reputations among football schools. We fans might not like these types of books, but we should at least question the relationship between NCAA sports and higher education. After all, college football scandals have occurred with great regularity all the way back to the late 1800's.

Several reviewers attacked this book as unfair. Perhaps they were correct, or perhaps they wrote more as fans than as objective readers. Whatever the case, readers should also see THE HUNDRED YARD LIE, a superbly-paced expose by former Northwestern player Rick Telander.

I admit I was curious to read this book to see what sort of legitimate violations or proof of such it could bring up. I was very dissapointed that the sources, interviews, and conclusions drawn from them seem far from credible. From the first chapter it is obvious the authors have an anti-Holtz agenda, though they claim to be "objective". A typical strategy for the authors is to interview a no-name player that got kicked off the team for, say, steroid use, let the disgruntled ex-student vent, and then inerpolate that interview out to conclude that steroid use is rampant in the entire program and overtly condoned by the staff and the administration, and that high-level conspiracies are in effect to cover it up. The authors do everything they can to stretch the truth and claim that their gross interpolations are "facts". I appreciate good, objective, academic debates, but this book was far from that. If you dislike ND, and have minimal capacity for critical, independent thought, you may like and believe this book. Others that can look beyond the propaganda (no matter if you're an ND fan or not) will realize there's a minimal fact pattern to support far reaching conclusions.

Just another example that any moron with a pencil and little or no brains can be a critic or character assassin. All HEARSAY. No Facts, nothing to back up accusations. Players who were quoted feel they were intentionally misquoted.
Authors absolutely had an axe to grind after their original book project was rejected by ND University. PRESENT your FACTS and I will step back. Obviously you can't or you would have!
Just because you wrote for Sports Illustrated does mean you are honorable in your endeavors, in this case it looks that you wrote garbage to make some cash off N D haters.
Shame on you boys ( little b ) for trying to smear a Great university and an Honorable Coach Holtz!
Coach Holtz is one of footballs greatest college coaches and a man of great moral character.
You couldn't make a patch on Lou Holtz A$$$$$$$$
This book is a disturbing look at the win at all costs, I don't know you if you're hurt tactics of Lou Holtz. A school with the rich tradition of Notre Dame seems to be above the law. But it is more Lou Holtz the Notre Dame. The same things occured at Minnesota and Arkansas during Holtz's tenure at those schools. The book is outstandingly written with stories right from the mouths that witnessed them. The players stories really make this book believable. A great book!!
