The Fix is the most explosive story of sports corruption in a generation. Intriguing, riveting, and compelling, it tells the story of an investigative journalist who sets out to examine the world of match-fixing in professional soccer.

From the Introduction
Understand how gambling fixers work to corrupt a soccer game and you will understand how they move into a basketball league, a cricket tournament, or a tennis match (all places, by the way, that criminal fixers have moved into). My views on soccer have changed. I still love the Saturday-morning game between amateurs: the camaraderie and the fresh smell of grass. But the professional game leaves me cold. I hope you will understand why after reading the book. I think you may never look at sport in the same way again.

Good book!

A very interesting read. It is shocking how lightly FIFA takes the allegations. One has to wonder how much they are getting paid to just look the other way.

If you are a soccer fan, this is a must read. Even if half of what was discussed is true, it is a scary concept. The section about the Brazil/Ghana World Cup game was particularly interesting since I distinctly remember the nature of the goals questionable.

The Fix takes us through our worst fears and leads them to our insecurities - all in the name of football. The author opens himself up and exposes a common fear and a common thought. Great read.. Will read again..
