Pressestimmen

"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 "Like the athletes he profiles, Larry Platt is a renegade in his own right. He has always known that the real stories are found outside the arenas and playing fields, and he tells them with insight and passion. Too bad he still can't go left..." --Gail Shister, Philadelphia Inquirer television columnist and former sportswriter "Larry Platt is a rarity among writers--a guy who understands the hip-hop lifestyle of today's athlete. Platt keeps it real; he explains where others judge." --John Lucas, NBA head coach, Cleveland Cavaliers "Few writers get the connection between sports and our public life as well as Larry Platt." --Ed Rendell, former mayor of Philadelphia "Larry Platt is one of the biggest pains in the ass I've had the misfortune of meeting. I can't stand the guy. Unfortunately this is a really good book." --Angelo Cataldi, WIP Radio (Philadelphia) talk show host "...written in a readable style for a variety of ages and audiences." --Kliatt
