Author Chris McCooey writes about events which have shocked and scandalised people over the years – forced child labour, grave robbing, highway robbery, prisoners held in appalling conditions,...

This is a book that pokes fun at the idiocy of justification that a university went through (and continues to go through), compromising their academic integrity in order to NOT educate some players... More > so the athletes could focus on their athletics and build sport prestige for the university brand. While the characters are not real, unfortunately the back and forth in this book accurately represents the excuses made to defend the indefensible and conceal information from multiple "reviews" that have extended over four years so far. The story is written as a children's book, in a whimsical way that pokes fun at the situation. I hope you enjoy it.< Less
