Reviews

“Incredibly compelling, fascinating, and disturbing ... Anyone interested in politics, in investigative journalism, and in crime or criminology will be fascinated by this, whether they love football or not ... Armstrong and Perry's book was one of -- if not the -- best books I read while serving on committee.”

-- Kelly Jensen, Stacked Books. Jensen was a committee member for the Young Adult Library Services Association that chose Scoreboard, Baby one of its “Outstanding Books for the College Bound and Lifelong Learners.”

“What the investigative reporter Ken Armstrong and the higher-education correspondent Nick Perry have done, first in an award-winning Seattle Times series and now in “Scoreboard, Baby,” is lay out — in hard-boiled style and with the verve only real story­telling can supply — exactly whose lives were mangled in the course of the University of Washington's historic 2000 season. Their idiosyncratic characters and plots ultimately indict a vast, impersonal system that has produced dozens of such teams. The Huskies didn’t break new ground here, but in so comprehensively detailing them, the authors did.”
-- Marc Tracy, Sunday Book Review, The New York Times
