The hero and anti-hero in contemporary sport, from a bestselling journalistFrom the Inside Flap:
"Larry Platt's writing flies two places at once: inside America's sports heroes and high above them, gazing down on the strange dynamic between us and them. You won't be able to look at our athletes or our society the same after you've read Platt."
—Gary Smith, Sports Illustrated
"Larry Platt's view of the sports world reads like fiction—but it's fact! Writers of sitcoms and soap operas could use New Jack Jocks as a source of great content."
—Pat Croce, part owner and former president, Philadelphia 76ers
